29 March 2021

On 25 February, the Ambassador of Tajikistan to Russia Imomuddin Sattorov met in Moscow with Nikolai Podguzov, Chairman of the Board of the Eurasian Development Bank. The meeting focused on discussion of cooperation between Tajikistan and EDB in 2021, and the prospects for implementing joint projects in various areas, including energy, manufacturing, and other sectors of the economy. This was reported by the diplomatic mission of Tajikistan in Russia. EDB, acting in its capacity as the Resources Manager of the Eurasian Fund for Stabilization and Development (EFSD), early November last year transferred to Tajikistan a financial credit in the amount of $50 million. The above funds were provided for up to 20 years with a grace period of up to 10 years at a fixed interest rate of 1% per annum. The credit is allocated to support Tajikistan’s national budget given the negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
