Businessmen complain that they managed to conclude contracts for which they are obliged to pay foreign partners in dollars. Now they have already sold the goods delivered by their partners, but they cannot pay them.
Businessmen complained to banks and the Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs. However, no one responded to them.
Since January 2016, currency conversion for individuals in Turkmenistan is completely prohibited. Entrepreneurs can convert currencies only upon special requests and in certain periods.
