I thank my hon. Friend, both for his question and for going to see DFID’s work in-country. The Minister of State, my hon. Friend Rory Stewart, is overseeing new international development programmes, details of which will be published in due course.
Central Asia, including Tajikistan, represents an important strategic imperative in terms of our wider development objectives. We are, of course, committed to ensuring that commitments are implemented, and that we start to deliver on those programmes later in the year.
