Berlin to host economic conference on Afghanistan

Berlin is going to host an economic conference on Berlin aimed at encouraging investors to invest in Afghanistan.

Muhammad Ibrahim Shams, Deputy head of the Afghanistan Investment Support Agency (AISA), said the conference would assess investment opportunities in Afghanistan.

This comes after President Ashraf Ghani’s recent visit to Berlin where he spoke of Afghanistan as a “country of opportunities”.

Pointing to Afghanistan’s natural resources and a potential energy hub across the region, President Ghani said Afghanistan was not a “country of beggars”.

The economic uncertainty and deteriorating security situation have resulted in a massive exodus of Afghanistan to Europe, mainly Germany.

According to German authorities, some 31,000 Afghans arrived this year through October. Germany, however, has made it clear that Afghan migrants will no longer be accepted.

“We will have to deport people to Afghanistan”, German Chancellor Angela Merkel told journalists at a joint press conference with Ghani in Berlin last Tuesday.
