DUSHANBE: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday addressed a joint event on agriculture here and said that it should be natural for India and Tajikistan to collaborate in the fields of agriculture, livestock and dairy.

“This is a very special event. It is one of the most important that I have attended in my journey through five Central Asian nations. Wherever I have been, there is usually an event of this nature for trade, manufacturing or finance. This is the 1st time we have a joint event on agriculture, especially on a scale as large as this,” he said at the Agriculture workshop.

Prime Minister Modi said that as in the world of business, international partnerships can also be catalysts for the development of agriculture.

“It should be natural for India and Tajikistan to collaborate in agriculture, live stocks and dairy. After we gained independence in 1947, our journey in the agriculture sector has been remarkable. Today, we are self sufficient in food grains and one of the major exporters of farm produce and animal products. Today, the possibilities of cooperation are endless. Realising them is important,” he added.

The Prime Minister further said that India and Tajikistan are strategic partners and it is one of the closest and most important relationships in the region.

“Ours is a shared enterprise of promoting development and prosperity in our two countries. We will deepen our cooperation in agriculture and transform our relationship in every field of human endeavour,” he added.
