In this regard, the head of state noted the importance of training specialized highly qualified specialists and improving the staffing of this area.
Among the specific tasks set by the President of Turkmenistan to the relevant leaders, taking into account the importance of science-intensive technologies in the context of the development of the national economy, the Academy of Sciences should continue relevant research and development in order to widely implement innovations, advanced methods and developments. The need for consistent stimulation of scientific research and discoveries, incorporation of the latest technologies and the latest achievements of world practice into the production process was emphasized.
Of particular importance is the activation of international contacts in the field of education - this is intellectual diplomacy, a link between cultures, educational and scientific systems of different countries and peoples.
Today, Turkmenistan is acquiring valuable experience necessary to increase the competitiveness of national education, its entry into the global educational space and, in general, to build a knowledge-based society.
Thus, among the priority tasks outlined by President Serdar Berdimuhamedov at an enlarged meeting of the Government following the results of six months, in order to further improve the quality of education in the country's universities, work should be carried out to include them in the list of well-known educational institutions in the world in terms of knowledge indicators.
Taking a course towards diversifying the economy, creating conditions for the dynamic development of domestic industry, Turkmenistan aims to accelerate the pace and quality of training highly qualified personnel in various fields. On behalf of the head of state, the country's universities are actively cooperating with foreign educational institutions to train young specialists whose knowledge is necessary for the implementation of large-scale and far-sighted development programs aimed at creating advanced highly efficient industries.
Having the opportunity to actively interact with foreign colleagues, thanks to the policy of "open doors" pursued by Turkmenistan and wide international cooperation, the country's universities are systematically improving curricula and plans, textbooks and manuals in accordance with the best international practices. Modern knowledge acquired by our citizens should find practical application in the sectors of the domestic economy, where large-scale transformation programs are currently being implemented to actively introduce advanced technologies and innovations.
The qualifications of the teachers themselves are also improving, who are mastering the latest educational methods and information technologies, international contacts are being built up between educational institutions of the country and abroad. Having established close contacts with prestigious centers of science and education in Europe, Asia, America, Turkmenistan has expanded its participation in international research, interuniversity exchanges and the development of academic information networks.
On the basis of international contracts for the training of specialists in popular areas, our young people receive education in secondary vocational and higher educational institutions of foreign countries.
At the above extended meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers, President Serdar Berdimuhamedov noted that it is necessary to pay close attention to the education of young people, based on intergovernmental agreements, in higher educational institutions of foreign countries, to prepare proposals for awarding diplomas to students who graduated from higher and secondary vocational educational institutions on a paid basis without a mandatory two-year training.
Consistent development of the education sector - purposeful work to create all conditions for the full disclosure of the intellectual potential of young people is the most important direction of social policy, successfully implemented by the head of Turkmenistan, the main principle of which is "The state is for a person!".
Thus, taking into account the new realities of the time, the grandiose tasks facing the third millennium, it can be said with confidence that the educational policy successfully pursued by President Serdar Berdimuhamedov is aimed at providing a solid humanitarian and personnel base for further advancement of our Motherland.
