We work closely together in trade and the economy, as well as in the cultural and humanitarian spheres. We continue to cooperate in finance, transport infrastructure, industry and trade, including agricultural imports and exports. To increase trade, we continue developing the International North-South Transport Corridor. Russian-Tajikistani relations in education and culture are making great strides.
