That is not a complete list of the social projects implemented by the Tajik Aluminum Company in the year of jubilee.

Among the most important task of TALCO is the support of governmental programs aimed at socio-economic development of the country regions. In this regard it may be noted the construction and commissioning of two brick factories: in the town of Dangara with design capacity of 15 million units of building bricks per year (in March 2010) and in Rudaki district with a capacity of 20 million pieces per year (in August 2011). Over 350 additional jobs were created at the objects.

In the recent years, TALCO management have proposed new business ideas, where the company clearly focuses on the introduction of innovation technologies, creation of high-tech industries and self-sufficiency of aluminum production with basic components.

Currently TALCO is implementing two major projects.

The first almost completed project includes a program on utilization of production capacities of the Republic of Tajikistan. Its main aim is to involve domestic industrial potential into the aluminum production. Today, more than 60% of all equipment and spare parts necessary for the aluminum production are manufactured by domestic enterprises. Already at this stage of the program TALCO significantly cut down its expenses, increased the productivity and profitability and created more than 4 thousands of new jobs. In its turn, the financial support rendering by TALCO to the Tajik enterprises have a positive influence on the development of the whole national industry.

The other side of active actions of the Tajik Aluminum Company is increasing volume of aluminum output that  also broadens the horizons of mutually beneficial cooperation with more than thirty domestic enterprises, including «Regarkabel», «Doro ohangar», «Tadzhikenergosnab», «Shohon» and others. The company also creates own industrial facilities that use products of the Tajik aluminum plant. Among them one can see TALCO CABLE plant meeting all modern requirements. The plant started its operation in Dushanbe in August of 2011 and gave 200 working places to the citizens of the republic.

The second project involves the program on transition of TALCO to local raw materials, the commissioning of which will be held through the creation of new business-structures such as: Energy and Metallurgical Company, Tajik Chemical and Metallurgical Corporation (TCMC) and a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV). By implementing the project, the Tajik aluminum plant will be provided by local alumina, aluminum fluoride, cryolite, graphite products, equipment and spare parts approximately by 60%. In the framework of the transition program it is expected to launch existing objects and construct about twenty new industrial facilities that will provide the republic with 16,000 extra jobs.

In addition to the achievement of competitive advantages that the company intends to receive as a result of implementation of the investment projects, such as increase in product at the existing aluminum capacities; own power generation and, therefore, energy independence and security of all TALCO divisions; cutting of production costs, TALCO will be able to make a significant contribution to the development of energy, metallurgy, chemical and mining industries of the country, as well as in the solution of socio-economic problems in the regions of these projects.
