EU relations with Tajikistan

Bilateral relations between Tajikistan and the EU are governed by a Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCA) since 2010.

Financial assistance is provided by the EU's Development Cooperation Instrument (DCI) and focuses on:

  • rural development and poverty reduction
  • agriculture and land reform
  • promotion of good governance
  • economic reforms.

The EU is currently preparing a new DCI multi-annual indicative programme for 2014-2020, which will set out the structure of future development cooperation.

The EU and Tajikistan also cooperate in the framework of a regional approach, which includes all five Central Asian republics: the EU and Central Asia strategy for a new partnership  (2007).

Tajikistan participates in several ongoing regional, thematic and bilateral programmes.
