Tajikistan, post independence

Open market, Tajikistan.
After civil war (1992-1997) the industrial and agricultural activity
were subsequently reduced. A peace treaty was signed to announce
that Tajikistan should be a democratic secular state. The leader of
the ruling People's Democratic Party, Emomali Rahmon (formerly
known as Rahmonov, Russian Equivalent), was elected in the election
held in 1999 and in 2006. But in 2008, the harshest winter in a
quarter century caused financial losses of $850 billion.
