An international investment forum, dubbed Pamir Invest 2022, is expected to take place in Khorog, the capital of the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region (GBAO), on August 17.

The State Committee on Investment and State-owned Property Management (GosKomInvest) says the event is planned to be held with wide participation of foreign investors, international organizations, development partners and representatives of relevant ministries and agencies of Tajikistan.  

Meanwhile, the transport communication between GBAO and other parts of Tajikistan, which plays a key role in attraction of investments, has worsened significantly over the past decade.

If, for example, in the tenth years the Dushanbe-Khorog flight had been operated, with the beginning of the twenties flights along this route were suspended.

Moreover, the highway connecting Dushanbe and GBAO’s capital, Khorog, remains in a dilapidated state in the territory of the region.  Rehabilitation of the highway in the territory of GBAO has been postponed since 2015.

Recall, the Pamir Invest Forum has been held in GBAO since 2011.  The purpose of the Forum is to present investment opportunities, to intensify the process of attracting capital, to strengthen the process of production of import-substitutable products, to increase export capacity, to expand cooperation between entrepreneurs and investors, and present opportunities for the development of modern entrepreneurship and, in general, to contribute to the expansion of the execution of the fourth strategic goal related to industrialization of the country and stabilization of the economic and social indicators of the Gorno Badakhshan Autonomous Region.
