Meeting of the Minister of Foreign Affairs with the Secretary General of UNCTAD

On December 5, 2014 in Geneva, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Tajikistan Sirodjidin Aslov met with the Secretary General of the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) Dr. Mukhisa Kituyi.

Having noted the importance of cooperation between Tajikistan and UNCTAD, S. Aslov has expressed interest to continue such cooperation in the fields of the use of the experience and capabilities of the organization to attract foreign investment, development of the national economy in accordance with the obligations of Tajikistan to the WTO, assistance in the development and implementation of innovative programs aimed at ensuring economic growth, development of transport and trade, as well as harmonization of customs procedures.

During the meeting Dr. Kituyi informed that at the request of the Government of Tajikistan UNCTAD initiated work on the "Investment Policy Review of Tajikistan." It is expected that this analysis will identify untapped potential of the country to attract foreign direct investment in such sectors as agriculture, information technologies and logistics services. The parties also discussed the issue of establishing in Tajikistan a national mechanism on trade facilitation.
