“National carpets, which were made better throughout the centuries and became a part of Turkmen’s life, are our pride and symbols of home. Carpets, which making art is registered in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List, are the monuments of an excellent art, which is recognized all over the world.

Carpet patterns of national symbols express the commitment of Turkmen people to advices of the ancestors and their pride of current achievements and confidence in light future.

The government pays special attention to improvement of glorious art of carpet making and its popularization all over the world. Big work is carried out for finding, preservation and restoration of ancient samples of carpets. This is brightly indicated by opening of new carpet production facilities in the country, conferring of the state awards to skillful carpet makers and honoring of their honest work.

Organization of exhibition of achievements of national trade complex in the days of events on occasion of Turkmen Carpet Day has special importance as the Great Silk Road, which once upon a time run across Turkmen land, has played a key role in popularization of our beautiful carpets. Today, this ancient trade route is restored in new format, which is very important in development of multidimensional trade and economic cooperation.

For relatively short historical period, our country has entered the rank of economically powerful states, established beneficial relations in trade, economy, science, education and culture. Further improvement of authority of our neutral Motherland in the world arena is our priority target.

I am confident that current, XXI session of the World Turkmen Carpet Connoisseurs Association and International Conference “Turkmen Carpet – Model of Beauty” as well as the exhibition of achievements of trade complex will give strong impulse to development of national textile industry, increment of local and foreign trade, popularization of Turkmen handmade carpet art.
