Economic Conference on Afghanistan to Boost Private Sector

More than 100 Afghan traders are expected to attend the 5th Regional Economic Co-operation Conference on Afghanistan, a potentially big boost to the country’s private sector, the Afghan Chamber of Commerce said Thursday.

Khan Jan Alkozai, the deputy head of the Chamber of Commerce said it was a great opportunity for Afghanistan’s private sector to develop and increase economic collaboration with other countries.

The Afghan traders will have the chance to showcase their produce at a trade fair throughout the conference, he said.

The conference, due to start March 26 in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, is also a valuable tool to attract foreign investment from regional countries, according to the Afghanistan Investments Support Agency (AISA).

Several large-scale projects will be presented at the conference by the Afghan government in the hope that other countries will seek to invest, AISA director of investment promotion Rohullah Ahmadzai told TOLOnews.

“These projects are in the sectors of infrastructure, railway transmission, and linking of western Asian countries with middle Asian countries via Afghanistan,” he said.

Ahmadzai said key sessions at the conference would look at securing and strengthening economical relationships of regional countries with Afghanistan, and how to connect regional Asian countries via Afghanistan.

More than eighty countries and organisations are expected to participate at the conference which will run from March 26-29.
