Building on consistent economic growth in Turkmenistan, its government has made significant steps to increase trade and enter new foreign markets. This includes the initiation of the WTO accession process in 2021, which will further contribute to modernizing the country’s trade policy and subsequent economic progress. To support the WTO accession process, the government of Turkmenistan, at the 7th session of the Steering Committee on Trade Capacity and Standards, requested the UNECE to conduct its flagship Study on Regulatory and Procedural Barriers to Trade (RPBT study). The objective of the project is to support the government in establishing institutional and legislative trade frameworks for ensuring successful integration in global value chains.
