Afghan Commerce Minister plans more investment opportunities for the country

Newly appointed Ministry of Commerce and Industries, Humayon Rasa, presented his 100-day Action Plan to the media.

He has listed investment growth as his top priority and plans to attract more investors to Afghanistan by providing an investment-friendly environment.

He also stressed on establishing a firm plan for the growth of exports. He plans to undertake necessary measures to help change Afghanistan from a consuming economy to an exporting source.

Rasa also plans to tackle corruption and apply the reward-punishment system in his administration.

He pledged to provide necessary support to the Afghanistan Investment Support Agency (AISA), which is in charge of processing investment licenses, providing investment related information and promoting investment in the country.

However, AISA recently criticized the Commerce Ministry of ‘illegal’ interference in the agency. According to AISA’s Facebook page, Mohammad Ibrahim Shams, acting president of AISA, criticized the Commerce Minister for introducing substitutes for the three vice presidents of AISA.
