Turkmenistan is a physically large country (slightly larger than the state of California) but sparsely inhabited (about 5 million people). It gained independence in 1991 after the breakup of the Soviet Union.
Although Turkmenistan’s vast natural gas and its oil resources continue to attract some foreign companies, the Government of Turkmenistan has yet to implement reforms needed to create an inviting business climate where foreign investment and foreign investors are truly welcomed and property rights guaranteed. In addition, the government is centralized and non-transparent, with much information that is readily available in most other countries classified as a “state secret.”
Turkmenistan publishes limited national statistics, but its data collection and evaluation methodologies have not been verified by independent third parties and are often not credible.
According to the 2017 Statistical Yearbook of Turkmenistan, the country’s 2016 Gross Domestic Product (GDP) was USD 36.18 billion (TMT126.6 billion) while 2015 GDP was USD 35.9 billion (TMT 125 billion), with official GDP figures as yet unavailable for 2017. The conversion from manat was done at the official rate of TMT3.5/USD. The government reported a GDP growth of 6.5 percent in 2017. These GDP figures and growth rate are implausible.
