ministry of agricultureConstruction work on a large cold storage facility is underway in Jalalabad, the capital city of eastern Nangarhar province.

Costing 160mn AFN, the facility is funded by the Afghan Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock.

Addressing the foundation stone laying ceremony, head of provincial agriculture department Eng. Mohammad Hussain Sapi said the facility would be built on five acres of land and would be completed in 2 years.
