What will the organizers of the X Gas Congress of Turkmenistan surprise their paeticipants with?
The delegates of the 10th International Gas Congress of Turkmenistan (TGC-2019), which will be held May 21-22 at the Avaza National Tourist Zone, will begin arriving in Turkmenistan in a week, and some even earlier.
The main points of the official program have already beenentioned by ORIENT in our publications, but we learned from the organizers what cultural program awaits the forum participants.
Here is what we were told in the Turkmengaz Group of Companies and the Turkmen-Forum Economic Society:
in addition to the already announced business excursions to the polymer factory in Kiyanly, the facilities of Petronas, the Turkmenbashi complex of oil refineries and the international port of Turkmenbashi, the forum participants will enjoy the refined taste of Turkmen national dishes, fruits and oriental sweets every day at lunchtime. Moreover, they will be able to taste all this food at Ak Oi, the universal dwelling of the Turkmen, whose origins are lost in ancient times.
Also, the delegates of the International Gas Congress, in their free time from meetings, negotiations and consultations, will have a wonderful opportunity to once again admire the meeting with unique handmade Turkmen carpets, to purchase various souvenirs based on the decorative and applied arts of Turkmen. Traditional Turkmen songs and dances performed by folklore groups will also be offered to their attention.
In the evening, after a busy day, delegates are awaited by a show program and dinner, during which they will undoubtedly enjoy listening to unique folk tunes in the arrangement of Serdar Haydarov, listening to classical and modern works performed by the ensemble under the guidance of Rasul Klychev, as well as songs by popular vocalists Nury Nuryev and Maysa Niyazova. So the show program promises to be rich and diverse.
And no matter how busy the participants of the Gas Congress are in solving their professional issues, the organizers of the forum, believing that it is unforgivable, having arrived at Avaza, not to take advantage of invigorating sea voyages, provided for exciting yacht tours along the Turkmen coast of the Caspian Sea.
Generous hosts made sure that all foreign participants of the forum – businessmen, scientists, specialists, etc. – are met at the airport, and the procedure of passport control did not take much time.
By the way, we recall that by decision of the organizers of the forum, local businessmen are provided with payment in national currency for participation in the Gas Congress, and with a 50% discount.
And this is being done in order to bring local business structures into the rapidly developing oil and gas business as actively as possible.
But we have listed only what concerns the cultural program of the forum. The most important thing on it is the reports of speakers representing key players in the gas market, round-table discussions, discussion of investment projects, business meetings and negotiations, signing of documents and agreements aimed at concretizing ways of ensuring regional and global energy security, new energy dialogue formats.
