Publication: Tajikistan - Enhancing Opportunities for Female Cross-border Traders
Women entrepreneurs in Tajikistan confront disproportionate challenges in their businesses compared to their male counterparts, with cross-border traders being no exception. The World Bank initiated the Fourth Phase of the Central Asia Regional Links Program in 2020, aiming to boost Tajikistan’s regional transport connectivity and foster cross-border trade. Complementing this program, the Quality Infrastructure Investment (QII) Partnership provided a grant to address gender disparities in cross-border trade and augment the economic opportunities for female cross-border traders. The grant funded activities are set to incorporate gender-responsive practices within Tajikistan’s Customs Service and strengthen the capacity of women entrepreneurs involved in cross-border trade.
