Dushanbe Hosts Seminar-Consultation on Tourism Opportunities for the City’s Development

The construction of administrative buildings and social institutions, launch of various enterprises and companies, and the construction of various public buildings and parks have turned Dushanbe into a modern capital. This was noted by the Deputy Chairman of Dushanbe Mavsuma Muini during an advisory council titled “Tourism Opportunities in Dushanbe: Real Preconditions and Development Prospects,” which was held yesterday at the National Library of Tajikistan.

According to Muini, a number of measures have been taken since the declaration of 2019-2021 as the Years of Rural Development, Tourism and Folk Crafts.

In particular, according to her, five new parks have been built in the capital, including Alisher Navoi, Kurushi Kabir, Javonon, Ahmadi Donish and Vose parks of culture and recreation, and six parks such as Sadriddin Ayni, Youth Lake, Abulkosim Firdavsi, Khayyam, Children’s and A. Mironenko have been completely renovated. All this has created a favorable basis for the development of tourism.

Two years ago, in accordance with the decision of the Council of Tourism Ministers of the ECO member states, Dushanbe was declared the ECO tourism capital. This initiative contributed to the expansion of cooperation with the ECO and the presentation of the achievements of the capital. It also gave a significant impetus to the development of tourism in Dushanbe.

More than 300 various international and national events, including the tourism festival “Welcome to Dushanbe — The City of Dreams,” the International tourism forum “Dushanbe’s Navruz — the Center for Cultural and Tourism Relations,” the international festival “Navruz — Cultural and Tourism Heritage,” as well as exhibitions, contests, folk crafts presentations, and other programs took place during the same years.

Dushanbe has become not only the administrative, political, economic, and cultural center of the country, but also a city with a lot to offer to tourists.

The event also focused on the implementation of international standards and quality management systems for hotels, and other sites frequented by tourists, as the quality of such services is a key indicator of tourism development.
