Sharing long borders with Afghanistan and Iran in Central Asia, and serving as a key link to the South Asian subcontinent, Turkmenistan plays a critical role in advancing regional integration and stability. The country’s large oil and gas reserves also make it a pivotal supplier for regional and world markets. As the former Soviet Republic emerges from decades of isolation, the United States supports Turkmenistan in its efforts to foster a more open and integrated society.
USAID works with the people and Government of Turkmenistan to strengthen and diversify the economy, build up nascent democratic and civil society institutions, improve access to key health care services, and promote greater regional integration and cooperation between South and Central Asia.
