Heads of ministries and agencies of Tajikistan as well as heads of provinces and cities will begin giving news conferences on the results of the past year’s work on January 27, 2020.  The ministerial news conferences will last until February 14, 2020.

Heads of ministries and agencies are expected to give news conferences at Republican Press Center in Dushanbe (Roudaki Avenue 40, 2nd floor).

The Ministry Energy and Water Resources, the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Justice and the Communications Service under the Government of Tajikistan will be the first to give the news conferences  on the results of their work carried out in 2019.

Recall, President Emomali Rahmon in March 2005 signed a decree obligating ministers, department heads, and local officials to give quarterly news conferences.

But by president’s decree issued in September 2011 ministers, department heads, and local authorities now give news conferences twice a year – in January and July.

The decree also notes that in case of necessity, ministers and department heads may give news conferences several times a month.
