With some of the world’s highest mountains covering 93% of its territory, Tajikistan faces obstacles to its development, including food insecurity, limited transport connectivity, and low levels of private investment. Due to its narrow economic base and reliance on remittances by labor migrants, Tajikistan’s economy remains vulnerable to external shocks such as the global economic impacts of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.
The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has partnered with Tajikistan since 1998. ADB’s investments in the country have emphasized diversifying the economic base and improving the investment climate to create jobs with higher incomes. ADB has helped Tajikistan to improve its transport, energy, and municipal infrastructure. The bank has also supported the upgrading of labor force skills and improvements to food security.
Since 1998, ADB has committed $1.63 billion in grants, $498.4 million in concessional loans, and $66.6 million in technical assistance for Tajikistan.
