Tajikistan is a land of great opportunities and potential across many sectors. It enjoys a strategic geographic location in the heart of the Eurasian landmass and the historical Silk Road, political and economic stability, positive reform dynamics, a very rich natural resource endowment (hydropower, coal, natural gas, gold, silver etc) and rapidly developing infrastructure. In order to attract investments and develop industrial entrepreneurship, new investment projects are being implemented under the framework of the ambitious National Development Strategy 2030. through this overarching framework, Tajikistan is carrying reforms of its public administration, improving the investment and business climate, developing its private sector, attracting more and more foreign direct investments and furthering regional and global interaction of its economy. Tajikistan has joined the ranks of the ten top-reformer countries in the World Bank’s Doing Business report. Furthermore, Tajikistan’s rate of poverty reduction over the last 15 year also ranks among the top 10 best countries in the world.

Also, 2018 has been declared as the year of tourism in Tajikistan as well as the European Year of Cultural Heritage. Tajikistan has many preconditions that create the potential for tourism development including the legendary hospitality of the Tajik people, thanks to the crucial role it played for merchants of the ancient Silk Road as a cross-roads for civilisations. Host to an impressive amount of mountain formation (90 percent of its territory) it is a set destination for travellers in need of thrilling and authentic adventure.
