Tajikistan is interested in assembling cotton farming tractors made by the Belarusian Company MTZ, representatives of the company told Belarus News “BelTA” after a delegation of the Tajikistan government visited the enterprise.

The Tajikistan government is considering organizing the joint production of tractors. The tractors may then be sold not only in Tajikistan but also in the entire Central Asia region. The assembly enterprise will make tractors cheaper for the local farmers, the Tajik side believes.

Tajik Agriculture Minister Izzatulo Sattori noted: “MTZ tractors sell like hot cakes in Tajikistan. They are best adapted to the agricultural and climatic zones in our country. They are also believed to be most reliable. It is also important that spare parts are available.”

The project to assemble cotton farming tractors is estimated at $7-8 million by the Tajik partners. “The demand is very large. There are orders from neighboring countries, too. We should conquer the market together with you,” said Akram Ruzizoda, Deputy Industry Minister of Tajikistan.
