Turkmenistan's potential in the sphere of raw materials is quite high. As a result, the day before the trading on the Turkmen Commodity and Raw Materials Exchange set an absolute record: more than 30 deals with foreign partners were made.
Afghan, Arab, and Turkish wholesale buyers purchased a large volume of liquefied gas, aviation fuel, and high-quality diesel fuel to keep the transportation sector running smoothly. Payment was made exclusively in U.S. dollars.
Foreign businessmen were also interested in cotton yarn and terry cloth goods.
The total amount of revenue traded on the exchange exceeded the wildest expectations, it was about 28 million U.S. dollars.
Among the bidders were also Turkmen entrepreneurs. But they were most interested in bitumen for road pavement and base oil.
