According to him, the complex was built due to funds provided by local entrepreneurs and only Tajik specialists and builders were involved in construction of the Kokhi Navrouz Complex. “Moreover, 90% of building materials used for construction of the complex were provided by domestic producers,” Rahmon said. According to some sources, the complex has been built at an estimated cost of $60 mln.
The head of state further noted that representatives of creative intelligentsia could hold their meetings, exhibitions and other events at the Kokhi Navrouz Complex.
The Kokhi Navrouz Complex that is a beautiful multidomed structure with hand-carved designs in wood was unveiled in September last year ahead of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit.
