Speaking at the contract signing ceremony, Urban Development and Housing Minister said that with cooperation from the Russian company an enterprise for a joint venture of USD 50mn will soon be established.

“We are hoping for the project to be completed in seven months. In the next three years, the project will be able to construct 100,000 residential buildings in the country,” said Minister Hassan Abdul Hai.

The project will generate employment opportunities to 4,000 Afghans.

He called on the Russian companies to invest in Afghanistan. After 11 years since the establishment of the new Afghan government, this is the first housing company in Afghanistan.

In 1964, Afghanistan had a major housing company with financial collaboration from the Russian government. The company had built houses in the capital and a number of the provinces.
