 Current percentage reduction of
dollar remittances to Tajikistan and
Kyrgyzstan is comparable to
remittance decline in 2015
 Remittances to Uzbekistan is more
resilient now compared to the
situation of 2015
 Both residents and non-residents
remittances to Tajikistan are
vulnerable
 Non-residents remittances to
Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan are the
most vulnerable compared to
residents remittances
 The current crisis has led to a
significant reduction in ruble-
valued remittances to Tajikistan
and Kyrgyzstan
 A decline in remittances and
export values could increase
poverty, deteriorate current
account balances and lead to
further devaluation of national
currencies in CA countries
Amid devaluation of national
currencies and decreasing consumer
demand, it is important to ensure
social safety nets for vulnerable
population groups and provide the
competitiveness of agricultural
production 8
