Besides, Tajik lawmakers will ratify a government-to-government agreement between Tajikistan and Uzbekistan on the avoidance of double taxation and the prevention of fiscal evasion with respect to taxes on income and capital, Muhammadato Sultonov, a spokesman for the Majlisi Namoyandagon, told Asia-Plus in an interview.  

This agreement was also signed in Dushanbe on March 9 during Uzbek president’s state visit to Tajikistan.
