Asian Development Bank and Tajikistan: Fact Sheet
Asian Development Bank | June 2011
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) began operations in Tajikistan in 1998 and has enjoyed a stable partnership during the past 12 years. ADB’s main task was to channel financial and technical resources to help the country improve the overall economic situation, reduce poverty, and rehabilitate infrastructure. Cumulatively, ADB has approved $372.5 million in loans, $35.4 million in technical assistance, and $284.4 million in grants for Tajikistan. Tajikistan is overcoming the impact of the global economic downturn, achieving 6.5% economic growth in 2010 compared with 3.4% in 2009. Higher commodity prices, particularly for Tajikistan’s major exports (aluminum and cotton); increasing inflow of remittances, and double-digit growth in the light industry and food processing sectors were the main factors behind Tajikistan’s improved economic performance.
