UN head tours troubled ex-Soviet Central Asia
Quote:
ASHGABAT, Turkmenistan (April 2) – U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has begun a trip through the countries of former Soviet Central Asia, a region troubled by poverty, oppression and fears of renewed Islamic insurgency.

Ban's blitz through five countries, which began Thursday, appears unlikely to produce any breakthroughs, but it will draw attention to a region often obscured by the shadows of its giant neighbors Russia and China and by the war raging in Afghanistan, just across the borders.

Beleaguered human rights activists in the region are encouraged by the attention, even though Ban has no announced plans to meet with their groups. His statements after meetings with each of the region's presidents are likely to be carefully watched for indications of how much pressure he puts on leaders who reject Western concepts, or are suspicious of them.

"Just the fact that the UN Secretary-General is visiting is an extremely important appearance," Elena Urlayeva of the Human Rights Alliance of Uzbekistan told The Associated Press by telephone. "A visit always helps us, even despite the fact that our government doesn't want them."

"The secretary-general has talked about being a 'voice for the voiceless,'" Holly Cartner of US-based Human Rights Watch said in a statement. "He should not miss this unique opportunity to put the full weight of the United Nations behind human rights in Central Asia."

Ban's trip began in Turkmenistan, the most closed and idiosyncratic of the five countries. Under longtime dictator Saparmurat Niyazov, Turkmenistan was until recently gripped by a cult of personality nearly as overwhelming as North Korea's and the country was largely inaccessible to the outside world.

Gurbanguli Berdymukhamedov, who took over when Niyazov died in 2006, has diluted some of those trappings — including eliminating the image of his predecessor that showed almost constantly on state television — and has allowed limited Internet access for private citizens.

Berdymukhamedov tentatively agreed this year to allow a second political party to be formed, but it was unclear if that would shepherd in genuine pluralism or simply be subservient "official opposition."

Turkmenistan cracked down on independent human rights workers at home years ago, and activists are watching the trip from exile. The Vienna-based Human Rights Initiative of Turkmenistan wants Ban to urge the country to make it more easy for students to study abroad.

Kyrgyzstan, the next stop, on Saturday, once appeared to be the opposite of Turkmenistan, and was hailed as the region's "island of democracy." But since Kurmanbek Bakiyev took office in 2005 following protests that drove out the previous president, pressure on human rights activists and independent media has increased. Last month, Bakiyev questioned whether Western-style democracy was appropriate for the country.

Kyrgyzstan is small and has few natural resources, but its stability is of concern to both East and West. Russia and the United States both have air bases in the country; the U.S. base is a key part of the military campaign in Afghanistan.

Frustrations over poverty and rights have contributed to growing support for the Hizb ut-Tahrir movement, which advocates an Islamic caliphate in both Kyrgyzstan and in Uzbekistan, Ban's next stop.

Ban's meeting with Uzbek leader Islam Karimov is likely to be the most tense of the trip, coming less than two weeks after the United Nations Human Rights Committee sharply criticized the country. In particular, the committee called for a more thorough investigation of the brutal suppression of a 2005 uprising in the city of Andijan. Opposition and rights groups claimed that hundreds were killed, but authorities insist the reports are exaggerated and angrily reject any criticism.

Ban then continues to Tajikistan, still struggling to overcome the devastation of a five-year civil war against Islamists in the 1990s and to fight the surge of Afghan opium that penetrates its porous border en route to European addicts.

The trip concludes in Kazakhstan, where media and activist groups operate with relative freedom. But President Nursultan Nazarbayev's party holds all the seats in the elected lower house of parliament, and critics doubt the country's commitment to reform.

New international airport to be inaugurated in Turkmenbashi
Quote:
A modern international airport capable of accommodating all types of aircraft is ready for commissioning in the city of Turkmenbashi in Balkan province of Turkmenistan. In the course of the Cabinet meeting on April 9, Turkmenistan's President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov set a task for Deputy Prime Minister Nazarguly Shagulyev, who is in charge of the transport industry, and for the head of the State National Service "Turkmenistan", Batyr Kakalyev to ensure international standards of services at a new air port.

In addition, the head of state instructed Vice Premier Tuvakmammed Dzhaparov together with senior management of the national airline "Turkmenistan" to consider lowering prices of aviation fuel for refueling of aircrafts on transit routes through Turkmenistan. According to him, it is necessary to take full advantage of the international airport in the city of Turkmenbashi, which enjoys a favorable position - the crossroads of important transport routes.

"We should also consider the issue of establishing a free economic zone here, Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov said at the meeting. This will provide significant foreign exchange revenues to the state budget, give impetus to the development of services, and transform the Turkmenbashi International Airport into a major transit hub." Speaking of this, the President of Turkmenistan issued instructions to prepare proposals and present them at the next Cabinet, the State News Agency of Turkmenistan (TDH) said.

The new airport of Turkmenbashi receives first international passengers
Quote:


On April 12, the new international airport of the city of Turkmenbashi received the first four international flights. President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov visited the airport on this day as part of the grand opening of the facility. He inspected the airport complex, which is designed to give new impetus to the development of national economy, the tourism industry and international cooperation.

The airport with the capacity of 800 passengers per hour boasts a four-story passenger terminal, a 61-meter high control tower equipped with special equipment from Siemens and Thales, as well as VIP-building for distinguished guests, meetings and conferences.

The airport can receive 7 flights simultaneously and prepare 14 aircrafts for flight and operation, while ensuring the international standards of service. The runway can handle virtually all types of aircraft.

The authorities plan to turn the Turkmenbashi International Airport into a major transit hub, and use to the maximum extent the air port's favorable geographic location by creating here a free economic zone and lowering prices for aviation fuel for aircrafts performing transit flights over Turkmenistan.

Circus reopens in Turkmenistan after decade-long ban
Quote:
AFP – Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov, President of Turkmenistan attends a ceremony at the circus in Ashgabat. The …
Fri Apr 23, 12:05 pm ET

ASHGABAT (AFP) – Almost a decade after Turkmenistan's leader banned circuses as "alien" culture, the circus reopened in Ashgabat on Friday with a show of clowns and elephants watched by the current president.

The Central Asian country's authoritarian and eccentric leader Saparmurat Niyazov, known as Turkmenbashi, closed the circus in 2001 after declaring it "alien culture" and "contrary to the Turkmen mentality."

Niyazov, who died in 2006, also closed cinemas, village libraries and the country's opera and ballet theatre in a bid to erase outside influences from the national culture.

Friday's show, attended by Niyazov's successor, President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov, featured Turkmen "Dzhigit" riders, who perform daring stunts, as well as clowns from Iran, Russia, China and Austria.

The audience of around 1,500 children also watched events featuring camels, elephants, pythons and even a crocodile.

Berdymukhamedov called for a review of Turkmenbashi's policies after his death and a revival of the banned cultural institutions in the isolated but energy-rich former Soviet republic.

"The state allocated 17.9 million dollars from the budget to reconstruct the circus building, which was built in the 1970s," a government source said.

The Bolsheviks embraced circuses as proletarian culture and the Soviet Union opened state circuses across its republics, usually located in fixed buildings rather than big tops. Turkmenistan's circus opened in 1985.

Circuses in the former Soviet Union have come under fire from animal rights campaigners for continuing to use performing animals.

In October, one person was killed and another wounded when an ice-skating bear attacked his Russian handlers at a circus in Kyrgyzstan.

Speaking about prospects for further cooperation, Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov named as the most urgent the projects for development of transport and communications infrastructure and partnerships in the energy sector.

"The CIS is a natural transportation corridor along the North-South and East-West routes, providing access to major world markets. Based on this, we see great prospects for the transnational railway Kazakhstan-Turkmenistan-Iran, which is under construction, as well as intensification of maritime transportation between CIS countries in the Caspian Sea," stressed the head of Turkmenistan.

Turning to the prospects of partnership in the energy sector, the president focused on the huge resource and transit potential of the CIS, noting that "successful implementation of joint projects for the construction of new transnational pipelines can give a powerful impetus to economic and social development for producer countries, transit countries and consumers.

IMF predicts impressive growth of Turkmenistan's economy
Quote:
The Turkmen economy is projected to grow impressively in 2010 and the fiscal balance is expected to remain in surplus, ITAR TASS reported referring to the IMF's statement for press on the conclusion of the annual review of Turkmenistan's economy.

According to the statement, a team from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) led by Mrs. Veronica Bacalu visited Ashgabat on June 16−29, 2010. During the visit, the IMF team held discussions with the Turkmen authorities on recent economic developments, exchanged views on near and medium-term outlook, and took stock of the ongoing reforms. At the conclusion of the mission, Mrs. Bacalu said that "the economy of Turkmenistan performed strongly in 2009, notwithstanding the challenging global environment."

"The successful reforms of the past two years in monetary, foreign exchange, and fiscal areas facilitated the strong performance. Real GDP growth was solid, supported by government investment policy and record-high foreign direct investment. Improved access to foreign exchange and the stability of the exchange rate have helped build trust in the national currency and the banking system. Inflation has been maintained at a low level," the head of the IMF mission said. According to her, as global demand recovers and Ashgabat's gas export volumes increase through the existing and new pipelines, "the Turkmen economy is projected to grow impressively in 2010." Bacalu predicted that the fiscal balance is expected to remain in surplus.

As she noted, "continuation of macroeconomic reforms will be important for further diversification and strengthening of the economy for the benefit of the Turkmen people." The IMF supports the authorities of Turkmenistan in their efforts to "improve the macroeconomic management, reform the financial sector, and expand private sector activity to achieve long-run sustainable growth," Bacalu said.

Quote:
The construction units of the Ministry of Railway Transport of Turkmenistan completed the laying of 300 km of rails of the international railway New Uzen-Gyzylgaya-Bereket-Etrek-Gurgen.

As the Turkmenistan.ru correspondent was told in the Ministry of Railway of Turkmenistan, to date, rails have been laid in the section from the railway station of Bereket through the town of Gyzylgaya toward the state border with Kazakhstan. Along the route there were built 11 railway stations and track sections, as well as over 100 artificial structures, including bridges and reinforced concrete pipes for the passage of mudflows.

At the present time, the Turkmen builders are doing the road bed for laying 305 km of the railway. The construction work involves 350 workers and specialists, about 120 units of construction equipment. By the end of this year it is planned to lay 350-360 km of rails.

According to official data, the new railway, which should be put into operation by the end of 2011, will cut short the distance of 600 km for transportation of goods from Central Asia to the Persian Gulf ports, and will become an important link in the transcontinental transport corridor between China and Europe. According to estimates, up to 3-5 million tons of cargo per year will be transported via this railway right from the start. In future, the volumes of freight traffic will increase to 10-12 million tons per year.

From Aedas architect's website, here's the design of new terminal at Ashgabat airport:

Aedas has been appointed by Leighton International as part of the Hochtief team to produce fast track design options for the redevelopment of Ashgabat Airport in Turkmenistan’s capital city. Our client selected Aedas following four unsuccessful designs by a high-profile international architect.




The design commission includes a landmark new Passenger Terminal, Presidential Terminal and Air Traffic Control Tower alongside a 200-bed hotel and administration building for the national airline. These buildings form part of a complete overhaul and replacement of the existing Airport facilities in a project totalling some €900m.
