Tajik president urges broadening of possibilities for trade flows with EAEUTajik President Emomali Rahmon has highlighted transportation problems between his country and the members of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU)."These [problems include], first of all, a limited throughput capacity at border crossings among our countries. We also feel that there is a need for new road and rail links, including rolling stock for transportation amid imbalances in the volumes of cargo flows," Rahmon said at a meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council, which he attended as a guest via video link on Thursday.Tajikistan has "colossal potential for growing high-quality, environmentally pure agricultural products," he said."We export almost half of all our domestically produced goods to [EAEU] countries. We are ready to continue increasing our exports to the EAEU, particularly of non-ferrous, rare and precious metals, textiles, cotton, and fruit and vegetables," Rahmon said.In 2022, trade turnover with EAEU countries made up over 42% of Tajikistan's total, he said. "We are keen to consistently strengthen our cooperation with your countries in all areas of mutual interest," Rahmon said."Our agricultural output is growing at an annual rate of at least 7-8%. This creates the required basis for more exports of organic agricultural products. The EAEU is a traditional market for this type of produce from Tajikistan," he said.The EAEU comprises Russia, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and Armenia. (ICE ALMATY)
