The Foreign Minister noted that economic recovery after the integration of Kovid-19, the promotion of small and medium-sized businesses and the implementation of anti-epidemic measures will require additional financial resources.

In addition, the Minister added that there are great opportunities for cooperation between the countries of the "Belt and Road" initiative in the field of green energy. Hydropower as one of the most effective elements of green energy can become a priority program for sustainable development. The availability of abundant water resources of Tajikistan provides a unique opportunity for the development of the region, both in the field of energy and agriculture.
