Turkmenistan to produce computers together with China

ASHGABAT (TCA) — At the session of the Turkmen Cabinet of Ministers on September 6, President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov signed the Law on Cyber Security, which, among others, defines the processes of digitization in Turkmenistan, the state information agency TDH reported. In this context, a totally new branch for the country — the computer production — is very important for establishment of ‘digital’ Turkmenistan and supply of the national economy with domestic information technologies. The development of the domestic computer industry started with the opening of Agzybirlik Tilismaty company, which was founded by the Centre of Computer Technologies of the Ministry of Trade and Foreign Economic Affairs of Turkmenistan together with Chinese Hengsheng Lianhua Investment Management Co. Ltd. and Tongfang Hongkong Limited for production of computers in Turkmenistan. This year, Agzybirlik Tilismaty made 80,000 children learning computers according to the Resolution of President Berdymukhamedov. The computers were presented to the first grade school students of the country on behalf of the Leader of the Nation. The software of the computers is able to perform 198 various educational functions and has three languages – Turkmen, Russian and English. Agzybirlik Tilismaty now works on manufacturing of test samples of notebooks, tablets, personal computers, and servers. The first batch of personal computers under its own brand name is to be produced by the end of this year. Annual production output of the facility is planned to reach 500,000 computers. It is planned that computers under Turkmen brand name will be supplied to neighboring countries as Agzybirlik Tilismaty is the only plant in Central Asia for production of computer equipment. The joint venture also works closely with Microsoft, the largest transnational company for software development, and the Intel, the leading producer of electronic devices and computer components. They have already given their recommendation to their clients in Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Afghanistan for procurement of computers from Turkmenistan.
