Turkmenistan GDP Annual Growth Rate

Turkmenistan, once one of the poorest and least developed former members of the Soviet Union, has been one of the fastest growing economies in recent years. The most important sector of the economy is oil and natural gas extraction, which accounts for more than 60 percent of GDP. Although agriculture accounts for only 10 percent of GDP, it employs 50 percent of the labour force. Turkmenistan is the world's largest producer of cotton per capita. While the government has recently enacted much needed reforms in agriculture and banking, reduced subsidies for fuel and is promoting tourism, it remains mostly authoritarian and in control of the economy. Furthermore, bureaucracy and corruption still hamper foreign direct investments.
