DUSHANBE, May 5. /TASS/. Tajikistan has demonstrated interest in cooperation with Russia’s Agency for Strategic Initiatives, an autonomous non-profit organization, the Agency’s director for external and internal communications Igor Karachin told TASS on Tuesday after a meeting with Tajikistan’s First Deputy Minister of Economic Development and Trade Saidrakhmon Nazriyev.
"We had a constructive and concrete conversation. I informed Mr. Nazriyev about the activities of our agency, including in such key areas as national rating, the purpose of which is to assess the results of efforts taken by regional authorities in order to create favourable business conditions," he said. "The goal of the national rating is to identify best practices of work with investors in a region, to create a system of stimuli for the authorities, to assess conditions of running business in a region with an eye of developing a standard and implement roadmaps."
"The Tajik side showed interest to these projects, and the Agency, on its part, is ready to offer its future partners the rating methodology," Karachin said.
Also, he said, he had informed the Tajik high-ranking official about "the worldskills movement, which is geared towards the formation of standards for professions, which both are in demand at the moment and will be in demand in future." "In Russia, this movement involves 700 colleges. As many as 39 expert professional communities have been formed," he noted, adding that it would be important for Tajikistan’s rapidly developing economy to expand a network of secondary technical educational establishments to train highly qualified workers.
Nazriyev, on his part, said the meeting with the Agency’s representative was very useful. "We think such contacts useful and will obviously look at all proposals from the Russian side," he told TASS.
Issues of economic cooperation and Russia’s assistance to Tajikistan in training workers were in focus at Karachin’s meeting with Russian Ambassador to Tajikistan Igor Lyakin-Frolov.
