Asian Development Bank and Tajikistan: Fact Sheet
Asian Development Bank | April 2012
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Tajikistan as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has partnered with Tajikistan since 1998. ADB enjoys close coordination with the Government of Tajikistan and among multilateral and bilateral development partners under the joint country partnership strategy and the Development Coordination Council. ADB is involved in developing regional energy policy and energy trading projects, rehabilitating regional transport corridors, and facilitating trade under the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Program. In December 2010, Tajikistan and the Kyrgyz Republic signed the first CAREC Cross-Border Transport Agreement, developed with ADB support, to facilitate the movement of people and goods across borders. The agreement will be expanded and opened up to new members, including Afghanistan. The ADB-supported regional Customs Modernization and Infrastructure Development Project, cofinanced by the Government of the United States, helped develop customs border post infrastructure, and install a unified automated information system at border checkpoints between the People’s Republic of China (PRC), the Kyrgyz Republic, and Tajikistan.
