The concept, which is planned to be implemented in three stages, outlines the goals, tasks and the main directions of development of the country's digital economy, as well as measures to increase the contribution of information and communication technologies to the gross domestic product (GDP) and improve the digital segment of the national economy.

This issue was discussed during a recent government meeting. Turkmen Deputy Prime Minister Gochmyrat Myradov delivered a report in this regard.

"The adoption and successful implementation of the Digital Economy Development Concept in Turkmenistan will contribute to the sustainable innovative development of the country, the competitive economy, the formation of new types of entrepreneurship and the attraction of investments," the newspaper quoted President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov as saying.

"This will allow implementing modern forms of state governance and increasing their efficiency, rendering quality services, creating new jobs and improving the social conditions of the population," the president said.

Reportedly, the Turkmen National Academy of Sciences was entrusted with development of the "Digital Turkmenistan", a new state program. The main goal is to stimulate the development of information and communication technologies and increase the contribution of this sector to the GDP of the country, as well as eliminate the digital difference in the life of the population of provinces, cities and villages.

Turkmenistan has big opportunities for the development of digital infrastructure using telemedicine, computer and telecommunication technologies through additional e-services for rendering remote consultations and knowledge, according to local TV channel Altyn Asyr.

Brazil’s version of Trump: why is it a «wake-up call» for the world?

<p style="text-align: justify;">A racist, a homophobe, a misogynist, a pro-torturer. Because of the profane outbursts and verbal abuse, he has earned such an image and was even considered as a political clown. Once he insulted lawmaker claiming that she was too ugly to be worth of raping. What is more, he said that he’d rather have a dead son than a gay one. Therefore, analysts concluded that Brazil has elected the most extremist president among democratic countries. So why did Brazil decide to make «really radical shift»? How did such an «extreme» and «unpleasant» figure become a president?<br /> </p>
