Tajikistan’s Transit Corridors and their Potential for Developing Regional Trade
Tajikistan, like other Central Asian countries, has a limited domestic market because of its relatively small population, no access to ports, is removed from major markets, and faces significant economic discord among its trading partners. Improving the transit infrastructure is one way of addressing these issues. This paper assesses Tajikistan’s pursuit of transit corridors and the establishment of multi-modal logistics services. It discusses the significant challenges and tough competition from neighbouring transit corridors that Tajikistan faces as it attempts to enhance its regional competitiveness.
