Asian Development Bank and Tajikistan: Fact Sheet
Asian Development Bank | April 2009
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. After a period of political instability and economic decline following the end of Tajikistan’s long civil conflict, the country has made substantial progress with gross domestic product growth averaging about 8% per year over the last 5 years. Poverty incidence fell to 44.4% in 2003, from 81% in 1999. However, the growing economy has encountered accelerating inflation, driven by higher food and energy prices over the last 2 years. The recent global slowdown has mixed implications for the country. Lower food and fuel prices will ease inflationary pressures, but stagnation of remittances will hit growth and spending by the poor.
