Tajikistan expects the World Bank to finish Rohun hydropower plant's expertise in February 2013, CA-News quotes the country's Foreign Minister Khamrokhon Zarifi as saying on Friday.

"We held a number of negotiations in this regard and expect the final report to be ready in early 2013," he said.

Tajikistan appealed to the WB to send experts for the Rohun HPP's expertise three years ago.

According to the WB's data, the organization finances two research materials - the feasibility study of the project and its ecological and social influence.

Rogun is one of the planned hydropower plants of Vakhsh Cascade in southern Tajikistan.
