In a report released at a news conference in Dushanbe, Mahmadsaid Zuvaidzoda, the head of the Committee for Architecture and Construction under the Government of Tajikistan, said on February 4 that construction of new buildings for the country’s government and parliament will be completed in October 2023. 

He noted that construction of the buildings is progressing according to the schedule.  

According to the Committee for Architecture and Construction, the main building of the parliamentary complex will be 49.7 meters in height and its total area will be 42,874 square meters.

The future building of the Tajik government

The Governmental complex will consist of one 15-storey building and two 13-storey buildings and its total area will be 10.27 hectares.

China has allotted 1.5 billion yuans (equivalent to about 220 million U.S. dollars) in no-strings aid to Tajikistan for construction of the parliament complex and the new building for the Tajik government.

An agreement on awarding this grant was signed in September 2017 during President Emomali Rahmon’s state visit to Beijing.     

A year later, Tajikistan and China signed a government-to-government agreement on providing additional grant aid to Tajikistan in the amount of 900 million yuans (equivalent to 129.5 million U.S. dollars) for preparation and implementation of the project on constructing these buildings as well a number of energy, infrastructure development, culture and education projects.

President Emomali Rahmon and Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China Li Keqiang took part in ceremonies to lay the foundation stones to the new buildings of Parliament and Government of Tajikistan in Dushanbe on October 13, 2018.
