Chamber of Commerce calls for government and donors’ attention to Afghan agriculture sector

agriculture landsThe Chamber of Commerce in northern Kunduz province urged the Afghan government and the donors to divert attention to the agriculture sector.

This comes as the agriculture business in Kunduz was adversely affected by the election stalemate.

According to Dried Fruit Association officials, the dried fruit business has started picking up after the formation of the new government.

However, lack of cold storages, proper transportation system and standard packaging mechanism continue to harm the agriculture business.

The Association Chief, Khair Mohammad, told Pajhwok Afghan News (PAN) that their dried fruit export plunged to 1,000 tons in 2014 from about 10,000 tons last year.

Kunduz is known for a variety of dried fruits, mainly almond. Known for their high quality, almonds are mostly exported to Pakistan, Iran, India, Tajikistan and America.
