History of Cooperation
Switzerland has been active in Tajikistan since 1993, when it delivered humanitarian aid during the civil war. In 1997 Tajikistan became a member of the Swiss led group of countries in the Bretton Woods Institutions, and at this point Switzerland established a Cooperation Office in Dushanbe, marking the shift from emergency relief to long-term development cooperation.
Switzerland supports Tajikistan in its economic, social and political transitions.
The overall objective of its cooperation programme is to promote peace and social cohesion as well as responsive and inclusive institutions and a sustainable development to improve the well-being of the population.
