“For us, this means that the government of Tajikistan is committed to supporting the development of tourism,” said Yanech. According to Yanech, Tajikistan is a country with rich nature, interesting geography, ancient history and culture, as well as stunning mountainous landscapes. All this must be utilized for the development of tourism.
