Nazeri in, a press conference on Friday, said that International Water Conference will be held in Dushanbe on August 21-22 under chairmanship of the United Nations and with participation of delegations from 60 countries.

Nazeri continued that so far heads and officials of 30 countries as well as representatives from 19 international bodies have accepted invitations and 52 more states have expressed their readiness to attend the meeting.
He added that totally 800 experts and officials will attend the meeting.
The official said the aim of holding water conference is an cross-border cooperation between countries.
Tajikistan has huge resources of pure and crystal-clear water and ranks first in the central Asia and third in the world in this regard, so the officials of the country are trying to attract foreign investment.
Generating electricity can develop Tajikistan economy, so in the past 22 years, 221 small power plants have been constructed in the country, but these plants have not been able to remove shortage of electricity in Tajikistan and there is a pressing need for foreign investment.
