More about Turkmenistan
- ALLCOUNTRYLIST: Overview of major industries in Turkmenistan, including mining, construction, transportation, tourism, and foreign trade.
Turkmenistan was one of the least developed Soviet republics until 1991, whose economy was mainly geared towards the provision of raw materials. The export-oriented natural gas and oil production as well as cotton production dominate the branch structure of the economy to this day, which is heavily dependent on fluctuations in world market prices for the raw materials in question and is also characterized by corruption and inefficiency. With reforms that are generally cautious, attempts are being made to diversify the economic structure more strongly. In terms of regulatory policy, comparatively little has changed in Turkmenistan since independence, even though the principle of the free market economy was incorporated into the constitution in 2008. The raw materials sector, industry, foreign trade and exchange rates are controlled by the state, Attempts are made to secure the standard of living of the population through high subsidies for gas, water, electricity and food. Since 1997 it has been possible to privatize small and medium-sized companies. Turkmenistan has recorded high economic growth since 1999 (2012: 11.1%), which is mainly due to high raw material prices, growing gas exports and investments in the energy sector. However, the weak world market price for crude oil caused annual economic growth to drop to 6.5% (2015).

Foreign trade: Turkmenistan recorded a positive trade balance in 2000-14, due to the high export share of oil and natural gas. However, the falling raw material prices led to the foreign trade deficit in 2015 (import value in 2015: 14.1 billion US $, export value: 12.2 billion US $). The main exports are natural gas, petrochemical products, crude oil and cotton products. Above all, consumer goods, chemical products, building materials, machines and equipment as well as raw materials are imported. The main trading partners are Russia, Iran, China, Italy and Turkey.

Around 28% of the workforce is employed in the agricultural sector (2015). Only 4.3% of the territory (around 2.1 million ha) can be used for arable farming, plus around 32 million ha of pasture land. Agriculture is dependent on irrigation, which, however, leads to serious ecological damage due to the high water loss in the ailing irrigation canals (including the Karakum Canal in the Karakum) and the increasing salinization of the soil. One consequence of the excessive use of mineral fertilizers is the pollution of the groundwater with pollutants. In addition to the irrigated areas along the Karakum Canal, the main cultivation areas are along the Amu Darya (especially in the region around Daschowus), Murgab and Tedschen. The cultivation of cotton is characteristic in monocultures; Furthermore, grain, rice, fodder plants, kenaf and sesame are grown, in the oases at the foot of the Kopet-Dag figs, dates, pomegranates, melons and grapes. Karakul sheep breeding is of great importance in livestock farming, which, like camel husbandry, uses the poor natural pastures of the Karakum, and horses are also bred (Akhal-Tekkinger horse breeding). Sericulture has a long tradition.
