Tajikistan is a member of the Commonwealth of Independent States and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. CIS agreements regulate the transit of goods through relevant territories.  Tajikistan is not a member of Eurasian Economic Union led by Russia and Kazakhstan.  In 2004, the United States Government and the Central Asian governments signed a Regional Trade and Investment Framework Agreement.  In 2015 Tajikistan joined the U.S. led initiative C5+1.  This is a format for dialogue and a platform for joint efforts to address common challenges faced by the United States and the five Central Asian states. At the first C5+1 ministerial, held in Samarkand in November 2015, the six foreign ministers agreed to focus on three sectors of common interest – security, with a focus on terrorist threats; economics, with a focus on improving regional trade flows and prospects for U.S. trade and investment; and environmental challenges. At the second C5+1 ministerial, held in Washington in August 2016, the six ministers agreed to launch five projects across these three sectors, funded by a $15 million appropriation from the U.S. Congress.  Since the inception of C5+1, the Central Asian countries have been increasingly interested in regional approaches and view it as a catalyst for common action.  More information available here.
