Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan are most corrupt countries in the world. At least they are denying you to enter the market. Numerous foreign companies have been invited to work but cheated and robbed by Turkmenistan. Turkmenistan is more rich than Uzbekistan in mineral resources and hence a number of companies enter in Turkmenistan market. The corrupt officials from top to bottom i.e from top minister levels to clerk levels are greedy and corrupt. 60% of Turkmenistan is unemployed. But the president has set utmost priority in constructing an ice hockey stadium, perhaps to cool down the corrupt officials physically. ministers and top official are frequently changed as if it is the Govt.policy to proivide oppurtnities to as many as possible to get rich by taking bribes. So all officials are nervous and they become super active in order to earn (bribe money) as much as possible before being sacked. The corrupt officials donot have any moral. Its the amount of bribe which counts. There is no honest offfical left to work with. Its the booming golden era of bribes.
