The Dushanbe administration is taking measures to support industrial production facilities.  Dushanbe Mayor Rustam Emomali has signed a decree on establishment of the Dushanbe Production Sector Support Fund.  

By mayor’s decree 35,000 somoni have been transferred to the Fund’s authorized capital stock, according to the Dushanbe administration press center.

Ten people will work with the Fund and its main objectives will be in providing legal, consultative and financial support to the industrial production facilities operating in the city, the Dushanbe administration press center said.

Recall, President Emomali Rahmon on January 15 signed a decree introducing a two-year moratorium on inspection of industrial production facilities.  The decree is reportedly aimed at supporting industrial production facilities as well as promoting creation of new jobs and strengthening of industrial and export capacities of the country.  The moratorium on inspection of industrial production facilities will be in effect until January 1, 2021. 

Under the moratorium decree, tax officials, prosecutors, the auditing chamber and anticorruption officials and the National Bank are still allowed to run checks.  Checks could only go ahead when there was a suspicion that consumer rights were somehow being violated.  The moratorium extends only to production facilities, not other types of enterprises.
