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 work carried out in the first half of this year on July 13, 2020.  The ministerial news conferences will last until July 31, 2020.

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

The Ministry Energy and Water Resources, the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Justice as well as the Communications Service under the Government of Tajikistan and the National Academy of Sciences will be the first to give the news conferences  on the results of their work carried out in January-June this year. 

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.
