Industry associations uniting private manufacturers of different products will be created within the structure of the Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs of Turkmenistan (UIET), the Union reported on Friday.
Activities are currently underway to establish two associations, one of which will unite the country's poultry farmers, and the other – greenhouse producers of fruits and vegetables.
