Over the last decade, Tajikistan has experienced strong economic performance, with growth rate averaging above 7.1%. Strong growth and higher wages helped reduce poverty from 32% of the population in 2009 to an estimated 12.4% in 2022 (at the international poverty line of $3.65/day).

What are the development challenges in Tajikistan?

Despite significant progress achieved in the last decade, Tajikistan remains vulnerable to external shocks due to its high dependency on migrant remittances, the undiversified economy and export base, as well as a high risk of debt distress.
