State Committee of Turkmenistan for Tourism and Sport to launch new newspapers and magazines

Turkmenistan will start producing weekly newspaper “Türkmen sporty” (Turkmen sport). The newspaper will be established as a self-financing legal entity, owned by the State Committee of Turkmenistan for Tourism and Sport.

In addition, the State Committee will close the popular-scientific magazine “Syýahatçylyk we sport” and establish two new magazines – “Bedenterbiýe we sport” (Physical Culture and Sports) and “Syýahat” (Tourism). The magazines will be printed every two months.

President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov signed a decree on establishment of new newspapers and magazines “with the view of widely promoting and popularizing the achievements made by the country in the fields of tourism and sport in an era of power and happiness of the Turkmen state; asserting a healthy lifestyle in the society; engaging the population in the active pursuits of mass physical culture and sports and tourism; acquainting foreign tourists with amazing, wonderful natural sites of the Turkmen land and rich historical and cultural heritage of the people.”

The above-mentioned newspapers and magazines will be launched in July 2012 in Turkmen, Russian and English languages.
