President Ghani vows economic boost to stop migrant exodus

Afghan President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani vowed to tackle unemployment in the nation in an effort to retain some of the tens of thousands of Afghans migrating to Europe in search of a better life.

In an exclusive interview with Tolo News, President Ghani said he was aware of the situation of Afghans seeking asylum in Europe, Australia or other countries and he promised to strengthen the fragile economy and create job opportunities.

He insisted that there was still hope in this country and pointed to agricultural projects and other initiatives such as the TAPI gas pipeline to boost economy.

“These projects will help create jobs,” said Ghani.

Presently, Afghans make up the second largest group of migrants sweeping through Europe, with more than 50,000 leaving Afghanistan since the start of the year, according to the UN’s refugee agency.
