60% professional in Afghanistan are expats-ACCI

alokozayExpats form 60% of professionals in both private and public sectors, said Deputy Chairman of the Afghan Chamber of Commerce and Industries (ACCI) Khan Jan Alokozay.
Mr. Alokozay made this statement at the graduation ceremony of 140 female students from  Kaweyan Business Development Services training course in Kabul city.
He added work opportunities are minimal for Afghan girls and women in the private sector.

“About 60% of our professionals are foreigners. Thousands of dollars go towards each expat’s salary, which is harming our local labor force,” said Mr. Alokozay.
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.

Meanwhile, Najia, a graduate from the Kawyan institute, said students graduating from such institutes have the capacity to work in the private and public sectors.
