On 20 January 2022, the Ambassador of the Republic of Tajikistan to Turkey Ashrafjon Gulov met with the Deputy Minister of Energy and Natural Resources of Turkey Alparslan Bayraktar.
During the meeting, the parties exchanged views on the current state of cooperation and further steps to their enhancement in the fields of energy and mining, particularly in the framework of the Tajik-Turkish Intergovernmental Commission on Economic Cooperation.
It was noted that energy is one of the priority sectors of the economy of Tajikistan. This sector, taking into account the rich water resources and the capacity for generating electricity in amount of 527 billion kWh, attracts the attention of foreign investors to the country. Moreover, Tajikistan is one of the world leaders in the field of water resources with four grandiose water initiatives in a global context.
The parties also agreed to organize virtual meetings in the energy and mining sectors in the near future to obtain additional information on investment opportunities in Tajikistan, as a result of which they will send their business delegations to Tajikistan and Turkey.
