DUSHANBE, June 1, 2016, Asia-Plus – Participation of the World Bank in development of communication lines in Tajikistan has reportedly been discussed in Dushanbe.

According to the Finance Ministry Secretariat, this issue was discussed at a meeting of Finance Minister Abdusalom Qurboniyon with Ms. Patricia Veevers-Carter, the World Bank Country Manager for Tajikistan.

The sides reportedly pointed out Tajikistan’s key role in development of communication lines in the Central Asian region.

They, in particular, stressed implementation of those projects and programs will promote expansion of cooperation in the region, the Secretariat said.
