Tajikistan joins WTO effective 2nd March

March 3, 2013

Well congratulations to Tajikistan on successfully joining the WTO  – full membership taking effect yesterday, 2nd March.

Having applied back in May 2001, Tajikistan  has joined in little over a decade – which is quite timely for a FSU nation – all things considered – particularly so if one is in no rush whilst waiting for Russia to be bound by membership rules before joining a few international clubs in which Russia sits, yourself.

Next stop, undoubtedly will be joining the Customs Union with fairly immediate effect – followed by the Eurasian Union if it is up and running in a practical sense by 2015 – which as matters progress, looks likely.

A small but interesting regional development.
