Tajikistan

People's Republic of China – Tajikistan relations are considered a foreign policy priority for Tajikistan. Trade between the two countries is worth US$2 billion.[1]

Having border with its Muslim Xinjiang province, the political stability of Tajikistan is very important for China. China firmly supports Tajikistan’s efforts to preserve national security and stability. For this, China helps Tajikistan in economic development. In 2012, Tajikistan obtained from China the promise of nearly US $1bln in the form of grants, technical assistance and credits on preferential terms.[2]
