Afghan Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock is going to build a fruit packaging facility and a laboratory in Badam Bagh area of Kabul in the next seven months.
“The complex will be inaugurated in the next seven months. It will also issue fruit quality certificates as per the requirement of the international standards in US and European markets,” said Minister Nasir Ahmad Durani.
Meanwhile, the European Union said the Afghan government should take advantage of the tariff privileges granted by the European countries to expand its trade.
“We are working also very closely with the ministry in terms of setting up laboratories and setting up certification systems, because, of course as you know the European markets are very demanding, very exigent and some minimal requirements have to be met,” Gonzalo Serrano-de-la-rosa, deputy head of EU ambassador to Kabul said.
Minister Durani said the laboratory equipment for the complex will be imported from the US and Europe.
