On August 31, 2023, the Embassy of Turkmenistan in Belgium, in cooperation with the “Diplomatic World” Institute, presented an exhibition "Cultural Treasures of Turkmenistan". This event was dedicated to the 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Turkmenistan, the European Union and Belgium, and the 32nd anniversary of the Independence of Turkmenistan.

The event was attended by representatives of the institutions of the European Union, including the EU Special Representative for Central Asia Terhi Hakala, members of the European Parliament, heads and representatives of the diplomatic corps accredited in Brussels, as well as various European institutions.

One of the highlights of the exhibition was the presentation of ancient Turkmen jewelry from the collection of the Belgian historian and professor at the Vrije University of Brussels Dr. Jan de Maere.
