About Turkmenistan

Sharing long borders with Afghanistan and Iran, and serving as a key link to the South Asian subcontinent, Turkmenistan could play 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 their economy, build up nascent civil society institutions, increase good governance and improve the quality of key health care services. As part of the USAID Mission to Central Asia, USAID in Turkmenistan participates in a range of regional programming, including the U.S. Government’s New Silk Road initiative, which increases regional connections between the economies and peoples of South and Central Asia — including Afghanistan — to foster greater stability and prosperity across the region.
