Turkmenistan has raised the age threshold for the "youth" category. This follows from the Law of Turkmenistan "On State Youth Policy," published in today's issue of the newspaper Turkmenistan.
According to the new version of the law, young people will include Turkmen citizens from 14 to 35 years old (now - up to 30 years).
And this, in particular, means that many more citizens can receive state support measures intended for young people.
The law significantly expanded the goals and main directions of youth policy.
The document also provides for a new concept of "youth entrepreneurship" in the legislation. It is considered as such if at least 75 percent of employees in an enterprise are under the age of 35 or the share of investments of persons under the age of 35 exceeds 75 percent in the authorized capital.
