Qatar interested in investing in Afghanistan

qatar karzaiLed by Qatari Businessmen Association Chairman Sheikh Faisal Bin Qasim Althani, the Qatari delegation met with President Hamid Karzai to discuss investment opportunities in Afghanistan.

Present in the meeting were Finance Minister Hazrat Omar Zakhilwal, Foreign Minister Zalmai Rassoul and some Afghan businessmen.

The Qatari delegation expressed interest in investing in some of Afghanistan’s key economic sectors: banking, housing, energy and technology, agriculture and health.

President Karzai had met with a group of investors in Qatar in March of this year and encouraged them to invest in Afghanistan as it works to secure stability before NATO-led combat forces withdraw next year.

Karzai had said that his country has tremendous business opportunities. Investment in any sector of the economy; be it is mining, quarrying, power generation, cement industry, housing, retail, banking, civil aviation and hospitality industry, all the sectors will give good returns. “Afghanistan is ready to welcome you with open arms and a happy heart. Investment in any sector will give good returns. Especially, investment in power generation and housing construction will see immediate returns.”
