They also agreed that the members have made a series of concrete achievements in their close cooperation and joint efforts in economic cooperation and people-to-people exchanges since last year's SCO prime ministers' meeting in Dushanbe, it said.

The prime ministers pledged to continue to consolidate and develop the organization for the benefits of all members as the SCO is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.

They also congratulated Tajikistan on its successful presidential election and hoped for further political, social and economic progress in the country.

The prime ministers noted that the group's Astana summit on June 15, 2011, underscored the need to bring new life to economic cooperation, as well as the need to improve peoples' livelihood, which the SCO heads of state took as a priority.

Therefore, they said, focus should concentrate on the formulation and implementation of joint projects in transportation, telecommunications, science and technology, innovation, energy saving, agriculture, trade and tourism.

The joint projects would boost the modernization of the economies, allow them to be innovation-driven and ensure sustainable development.

The prime ministers also welcomed the outcome of the SCO trade ministers' meeting in Dushanbe on Oct. 26, 2011.

To strengthen economic cooperation and people-to-people exchanges within the SCO, the prime ministers have instructed authorities to draft a list of measures for the promotion of joint projects and to submit them for their approval.
