Gov’t decides to merge AISA into Ministry of Commerce

The Afghan government has decided to merge the Afghanistan Investment Support Agency (AISA) into the Ministry of Commerce and Industry Ministry.

The decision was made at the High Economic Council (HEC) meeting on Tuesday in the presence of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Abdullah Abdullah, AISA chief Qurban Ali Haqjo and senior officials from the government.

Two proposals were brought to the table regarding the position of AISA in the government.

The first proposal was put forward by AISA officials and called for recognizing the body as a budgetary unit. The second proposal was presented by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, calling for AISA to be  merged into it.

The HEC approved the second proposal and assigned the Ministry to formulate a plan in this regard.

AISA began as an agency that provided licenses to companies wishing to invest in Afghanistan. AISA has now evolved into a pro-active institution in promoting and attracting investment to Afghanistan.
