Ministerial semiannual news conferences expected to start on July 26
Heads of ministries and agencies of Tajikistan as well as heads of provinces and cities are expected to begin to give news conferences on the results of the past half-year’s work on July 26.
The state-run news agency Khovar says the news conferences will run through August 14.
It is noted that responsible persons of ministries, agencies and organizations based in Dushanbe must agree on the time of press conferences by the following telephone numbers: 238-52-23; 888-08-34-04.
Recall, President Emomali Rahmon on March 4, 2005 signed a decree obligating ministers, department heads, and local officials to give quarterly news conferences.
But by president’s decree issued in September 2011, ministers, department heads, and local authorities now give news conferences only twice a year – in January and July.
The decree also notes that in case of necessity, ministers and department heads may give news conferences several times a month.
