Investment Policy Review - Tajikistan

image of Investment Policy Review - Tajikistan

More than a decade of high economic growth has contributed to poverty reduction in Tajikistan. Following independence, the country suffered significant economic losses and social costs, which were compounded by the consequences of the civil war that ended in 1997. Since that time, peace and political stability have been consolidated, and Tajikistan has adopted a reform agenda to progressively enhance its development prospects. The reforms contributed to higher economic growth rates and positive social development. For instance, since 2000, gross domestic product (GDP) growth averaged about 8 per cent, contributing to significant poverty reduction, and the inflation rate fell from close to 40 per cent in 2001 to 6 per cent in 2014 (World Bank, 2015a).




UNCTAD Investment Policy Reviews (IPRs) are intended to help countries improve their investment policies and to familiarize Governments and the international private sector with an individual country's investment environment. The reviews are considered by the UNCTAD Commission on Investment, Enterprise and Development. The recommendations of the IPR are then implemented with the technical assistance of UNCTAD. The support to beneficiay countries is delivered through a series of activities which can span over several years.
