Afghan presidential candidates criticized for using foreign printing industry
Meanwhile, the Afghan Industrial Union (AIU) have criticized the candidates for printing their campaign materials abroad, particularly in Pakistan.
“Our local printing industry is now self-sufficient. Most of the electoral promotional materials are printed in Peshawar, Pakistan. This hurts the local printing industry and transfers cash out of the country,” said Sakhi Ahmad Paiman, head of the Union.
He called on the candidates to keep to their promise of making the country “self-sufficient” and using local printing industries.
According to Tolo News, around 130 small and large printing agencies are active in Kabul. However, the demand for these agencies is not nearly as high as that of Peshawar’s.
