“Nation Brand Tajikistan”

A Lecture by Ambassador of Tajikistan to Germany, H.E. Amb. Imomudin Sattarow

“To develop tourism in Tajikistan means to diversify the economy of our country, to develop one of the main economic sectors of the country, to generate the additional income to state, district and rural areas.  In Tajikistan more than 50% of population is living in rural areas, 93% of our total territory is coloured by mountains and 22% of our territory announced as a national protected zones. There are few examples that are worth considering. If in the capital cities a 100 Euro per day isn’t a big amount, for rural areas even earning 50 Euro per day could be a challenge. That’s why we pay significant attention to develop tourism in rural areas, especially in eco-tourism.”
