The latest Tajikistan Economic Update outlines the economic situation in the country and medium-term development prospects.
Since independence, Tajikistan has done a remarkable job in reducing poverty. Between 2000 and early 2009, poverty fell from over 83 to about 47%, and it fell further from 37 to 30.3% between 2012 and 2016. Since 2012, the poorest regions of the country have made the most progress in poverty reduction. However, progress has been slower in reducing non-monetary poverty.
