The current system of public procurement was implemented in 2004 with the adoption of the “Law On Public Procurement of Goods, Works and Services” based on a standard model of the Law on Public Procurement of United Nations Commission on International Trade Law. The Agency on Public Procurement of Goods, Works and Services under the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan is the main coordinating agency in the Tajik Government for state purchases: http://goszakupki.tj/
The Government of Tajikistan has a number of infrastructure projects financed by international financial institutions and foreign governments, including China, Russia, Kazakhstan and Iran. Large-scale opportunities exist in the following sectors:
- Trade policy and facilitation
If a U.S. company considers entering the Tajik market and becoming a government supplier it must consider the high level of corruption within the public sector and competition from foreign companies that may use political and other types of leverage during negotiations for state investments.
To obtain more information on procurement opportunities, interested U.S. companies are encouraged to contact the U.S. Embassy in Dushanbe.
