2-day mobile phone exhibition held in Kabul

Afghanistan’s first-ever mobile phone exhibition was inaugurated at the Daudzai business center in Kabul city on Saturday.

Organized by Modern Method Company, the event is held to expand mobile phone market inside Afghanistan.

Zia-ul-Haq Zia, Manager at the Modern Method Company, said 15 companies importing mobile phones are participating in the exhibition.

According to Zia, about 10,000 people attended the exhibition within the first three hours.

“We are expecting to have a turnout of over 30,000 people in the two days of the exhibition,” said Zia.

The organizer plans to hold such exhibition.

Afghanistan is a huge importer of mobile phones and does not produce mobile phones itself.

According to figures from the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, over 23mn people use mobile phones in Afghanistan and over USD 2.4bn has been invested in the telecommunication sector of Afghanistan.

The telecommunication sector is one of Afghanistan’s major success stories in the past decade.
