Kaweyan Business Development Services (KBDS) is a private company established by Ms. Kamela Sediqi in 2004. KBDS is registered under number 21909 with the Afghan Investment Support Agency (AISA). Since the day of the establishment of KBDS, it is committed and devoted to work for the business and community development through different professional angles.

 KBDS has four major departments working for business development. The four departments are 1) Business Development Training 2) Developing Business Plans 3) Market Research & Organization Assesment 4) Recruitment Department.

Meanwhile, Deputy Chairman of the Afghan Chamber of Commerce and Industries (ACCI) said expats form 60% of professionals in both the private and public sectors.

The ACCI Deputy Chairman said the country is in need of  more professionals; however, the government has failed to address this problem in the past 12 years.

“We are interested in hiring more women both in the private sectors. About 93,000 students are enrolled in technical institutes, 25% of which are females. 250 technical institutes are currently operating in Afghanistan, and this number is not enough. The government needs to pay more attention in this area.”
He accused the government of failing to invest in the technical institutes to help create more professionals to work for the country.
