Who doesn’t like a story with a sweet ending?
Established by Tajero group of companies, an importer and distributor of food products in Tajikistan, LLC Amiri confectionary plant started its operations in 2011 with the help of a US$1.3 million loan from the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the Word Bank Group. Today, Amiri holds a leading position in the market with a diversified product range consisting of more than 40 types of chocolate and sweets.
Private sector development is one of World Bank Group’s priorities in Tajikistan. The World Bank is helping remove key constraints to business development and investment by simplifying business registration and construction permitting processes, improving regulations and infrastructure underlying access to financial services, and encouraging development of the mining industry, where Tajikistan has a competitive advantage.
The new Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) for Tajikistan aims to expand opportunities for individuals and private businesses and provide the foundation for a new growth model focused on private sector-led investment and exports. The objectives of the CPS are sweet news for Amiri.
