MOSCOW, September 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia provided $6.7 million to Tajikistan to improve the population’s well-being within the UN Development Program (UNDP), the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.
The funding was rendered within the project for improving well-being of one million people living in Tajikistan’s nine rural areas. The project is designed to be implemented in 2014-2016, the ministry said.
“The project envisages taking measures to increase employment and develop entrepreneurship in the Sogdia district and Khatlon Province, and the Rasht Valley. Microloans are expected to be allocated to physical and juridical persons to develop agriculture, to provide grants to small economic projects, to increase qualification of Tajik officials and restore technical training,” the ministry said.
“Russia’s financial, expert and technical support for the project will serve further strengthening of strategic partnership between Russia and Tajikistan, which is one of the priority Central Asia state-recipients of Russia’s contribution,” the ministry said.
The implementation of the project will be Russia’s practical contribution to the efforts taken by the international community to achieve the UN Millennium Develop Goals in Tajikistan.
