Bordering Afghanistan, Tajikistan is a linchpin for stability and security in Central Asia. It is also key to developing trade and energy linkages between South and Central Asia. The United States partners with Tajikistan to assist the country to play a constructive role in regional prosperity, connectivity, stability and security.
USAID promotes economic growth, democracy, education, health and food security in Tajikistan. As part of the USAID Mission to Central Asia, USAID in Tajikistan advances the U.S. government’s New Silk Road initiative, which increases regional connections between the economies and peoples of Central and South Asia — including Afghanistan — to foster greater stability and prosperity.
