Tajikistan is a priority country of Switzerland’s transition cooperation with Central Asia. Despite significant progress in reforming its international trade policy, the country remains very vulnerable to external shocks. In the frame of the Swiss cooperation with Central Asia, SECO strengthens macroeconomic, trade and business friendly framework conditions as well as access to affordable, reliable and sustainable infrastructure.
Switzerland's cooperation strategy for Central Asia aims at poverty alleviation, facilitation of sustainable, private sector-led growth, equitable access to good quality public services and transition towards a pluralistic and economically viable state. The transition to democracy and a functioning market economy is a challenge for Tajikistan.
