The Asian Development Bank (ADB) Country Director for Tajikistan Ms. Shanny Campbell said that they considered providing $193 million to support different development projects in the Central Asia Country this year (2022).
Campbell said ADB’s plan for this year includes projects to support further development of the urban infrastructure in Dushanbe, Tajikistan’s capital city, improve energy and financial sectors, build disaster resilience and improve road maintenance.
“However, the final amount of the ADB planned assistance will depend on various factors, including available resources and readiness of projects,” Campbell noted.
Meanwhile, Campbell said that the Bank has decided to grant $465 million to Tajikistan in grants within the next three years (2022-2024).
Campbell furthered that ADB, under its partnership strategy for Tajikistan (2021–2025) would support government efforts to increase productivity, mobilize private investments—and ultimately improve the quality of Tajikistan’s economic growth.
“We are going to support structural reforms to enhance resource allocation and mobilization, improve labor productivity through human capital development, and foster better livelihoods through investments in a land-linked economy,” Campbell added.
Campbell furthered that ADB also helped Tajikistan with a $25 million grant to deploy COVID-19 vaccines and another $30 million to support the modernization of irrigation and drainage infrastructure in Yovon district.
