The Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Tajikistan, formerly the Tajik Soviet Socialist Republic, held a meeting on Monday to commemorate the 19th anniversary of the adoption of the national constitution.
In a speech, Minister of Finance Nazhmudinov SM recalled the early days of Tajikistan's independence from the Soviet Union, including the initial government chaos and internal fighting, and said the adoption of the constitution helped to strengthen the foundations of the new state and protect the rights and freedoms of all citizens.
After Tajikistan declared independence in 1991, it almost immediately fell into a civil war that lasted from 1992 to 1997. Since the end of the war, political stability and foreign aid have allowed the country's economy to grow. Trade in commodities such as cotton, aluminum and uranium has also contributed greatly to its recovery.
Nazhmudinov also congratulated staff members, wishing them health, happiness and success in their daily work.
