Theme: Advancing Economic Empowerment and Entrepreneurship

Deteriorating socioeconomic conditions in Turkmenistan have led to increased cases of poverty and a higher percentage of low-income individuals. Cities outside of the capital, in particular, have seen an increased number of people living below the poverty line.

Despite laws set in place by the Turkmen government to promote small business development, the lack of business expertise, corruption, and limited financial support from the government remain significant challenges to bolstering civil society and small businesses efforts to support women, and disadvantaged groups.
