Regulatory and Procedural Barriers to Trade in the Republic of Tajikistan (2014)
The study features a detailed analysis of behind and at-the-borders regulatory and procedural barriers to trade, highlighting their causes, how they interact to undermine Tajikistan’s export competitiveness and the extent to which these barriers could be addressed through regional cooperation. It also provides practical, action-oriented recommendations, which build on international best practices and UNECE recommendations, norms, standards and guidelines in the areas of trade facilitation and regulatory cooperation. The recommendations draw on extensive discussions with key public and private sector stakeholders to ensure national ownership, relevance and responsiveness to the country’s immediate and long-term trade needs and development goals. The report cites how accredited conformity assessment can support trade.
