DUSHANBE, December 17 (RIA Novosti) – Tajikistan’s State Investment Committee and Coca-Cola, a global beverage industry leader, on Monday signed a memorandum of cooperation, the presidential press service said.
Coca-Cola will enter the republic’s market with a $30 million investment that should double in the next 10 years.
The company is planning to bottle carbonated soft drinks in the Central Asian country next year.
