Turkmenistan is considering the prospects of transferring the terminals of the Turkmenbashi seaport to trust management.

Trust management is a method in which the owner of assets transfers them to a trustee – an investor or another trustee based on a signed contract. In legal practice, with this type of management, the ownership right remains with the owner of the assets, and the trustee disposes of them only in his interests.
Another of the objectives of trust management is to attract foreign and domestic investments into the economy of Turkmenistan. KPMG representatives expressed interest in cooperation in expanding the services and capabilities of the Turkmenbashi International Seaport.
