The presentation of new building projects was held there last Sunday with the participation of President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov of Turkmenistan.
“This resort is to become a desired place for numerous tourists from all over the world, all conditions for holding large-scale international events are to be created here,” the president said.
Within the framework of the event, projects of residential areas were presented by leaders of the parliament, the Foreign Ministry, departments of the financial-economic sector, the oil and gas industry, the chemical sector and fishery.
The project of creating the national tourist zone on the shore of the Caspian Sea was launched in 2007. Since that time, eight comfortable hotels for 1,700 tourists, two recreation centres for 880 children and adults each have appeared there. To service the zone, a new gas-turbine electric power station and a sea water desalination installation were put into operation, as well as an international airport was built in Turkmenbashi.
