About the project

The e-Registry for business licenses and permits is developed by the State Committee on Investment and State Property Management of the Republic of Tajikistan with assistance of IFC's Tajikistan Business Enabling Environment Project, which is financed by the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and Department for the International Development of the United Kingdom (UKaid). The e-Registry should assist in bringing transparency to the process of obtaining business licenses and permits within the territory of the Republic of Tajikistan and making the job of individual entrepreneurs, legal entities and license or permit issuing authorities more efficient.

The main reason for creating e-Registry for business licenses and permits is to allow individual entrepreneurs and legal entities to have an online access to information and materials regarding business licenses and permits required to carry out  certain types of activities within the territory of the Republic of Tajikistan.

During the eight years since its launch, the IFC's Tajikistan Business Enabling Environment Project has benefited from close interaction with many public and private institutions operating in Tajikistan, as well as a number of international organizations.

The BEE project would like to extend gratitude to the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan, Office of the President of the Republic of Tajikistan and State Committee on Investment and State Property Management of the Republic of Tajikistan.
