DUSHANBE, October 19. /TASS/. The Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI) of Tajikistan invites Russian enterprises to consider the issue of localizing the production of household equipment on the territory of the republic. Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Republic Jamshed Dzhumakhonzoda reported this to TASS.
“In our republic, favorable conditions have been created and are being created for the localization of production within the framework of accelerated industrial growth programs, so I think that Russian companies should study the conditions that have been created in Tajikistan. <…> We really value Russian products, they are traditionally is considered to be of high quality, it is popular and for this purpose I would like to draw the attention of respected Russian manufacturers to the issue of localization,” he said at the exhibition of Russian equipment “Spetsmash – Tajikistan 2023”, which opened in Dushanbe.
The agency’s interlocutor noted that entering the Tajik market for Russian manufacturers of special equipment is the first step. “Secondly, if in the future a company wants to maintain its place in the market and competitive advantages, it must think about how things are going with localization, what the conditions are in the country,” added the chairman of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
According to him, “the government of Tajikistan is ready to provide benefits and preferences to those companies that want to establish production.” He also noted that localization opens access to markets in other countries. “If we think about the future and strategically, then we have a huge market nearby – this is the market of Afghanistan, where there are more than 30 million people. I am sure that any Russian products will be in demand, but from an economic point of view, bringing all this from Russia to Afghanistan, It will probably be unprofitable, but localization will be profitable,” Dzhumakhonzoda said.
