Tajikistan to Sell Electricity to Uzbekistan in Boon For Integration

Starting in April through to September, Tajikistan will export 1.5 billion kilowatt hours of electricity to Uzbekistan.

Mirzo Ismoilzoda, head of Tajik state-run power company Barki Tojik, said at a press conference on February 14 that although the sales agreement is in place, the sides have yet to land on a price mechanism.

Despite the lack of clarity on the financial details, the very agreement represents another major step forward for the champions of regional integration.
