Afghanistan’s problem is not Money but lack of Human Capital

Lack of professional individuals and proper management of projects are the main obstacles to the development of infrastructure in the country.

Building, Water and Energy Consultant to the President Yusuf Pashtoon spoke in an international conference on infrastructure in Afghanistan and said that Afghanistan is facing lack of skilled workers.

“Afghanistan’s problem is not entirely money but lack of human capital with regards to planning and foresight. And when a project or plan is implemented, there is a need for thousands of workers. Today, you can hardly find 5,000 workers in Kabul despite the fact that current projects in Kabul need between 150 to 200 thousand workers.”

Meanwhile, a team of Indonesian researchers is planning to study the ways needed for capacity building in Afghanistan.

Henry Samuri, Representative of the Indonesian research team, says that his country will cooperate with Afghanistan to prevail Afghanistan’s problems.

 “Indonesia is committed to the development of Afghanistan in the areas of infrastructure and meeting international standards. Indonesia has trained hundreds of Afghans since  2006 till present in the areas of education, agriculture, good governance and democracy.”

A number of experts has criticized the government for its failure in the areas of infrastructure since the past decade. They say that by now the government should have mechanized agriculture and established several electricity dams.

Lack of standard roads is another infrastructure problem in Afghanistan that receives extreme criticism from people.
