Afghanistan’s New Policy for National Trade to be initiated

Ministry of Commerce and Industries has initiated a new policy in order to meet the challenges in the old national trade policy.

A one-day workshop on the development of national trade policy was held today in Kabul. The workshop, attended by officials from Commerce Ministry, officials from HARAKAT agency and Afghan businessmen, was aimed at creating a new national trade policy.

 General Chief of HARAKAT Organization Nasim Akbar speaking at the ceremony said that the new policy will be arranged in 4 stages at a cost of USD 400,000.

According to him, these stages all business related information are collected and registered. And, dialogue between private sector and government in relation to policy design and improvement of private sector employees for the purpose of establishing an active private sector will be created. The success over time will be measured.

Khan Jan Alokozay, Deputy of Afghan Chamber of Commerce, said that subject matters such as supporting exports, carpet industry, precious plants and production of traditional agricultural products and their trade should be placed in the policy.

He also mentioned the interference from ministry’s departments as being a fundamental problem  of Ministry of Commerce.

Aman Nawabi, Head of the World Best Consulting, said that the first stage of the new policy, which is gathering views of businessmen, has begun in four provinces of Afghanistan-Kabul, Balkh, Herat and Nangarhar- simultaneously.

The new policy, which will address the challenges in the previous trade policy, will prove to be very important for the country’s trade, according to Sayed Mustafa Hashimi, Head of Bureau of Export Promotion of raisins, fruits and vegetables.

Mr. Alokozay said that it will be sometime until the policy is totally developed. “We requested the government several time for the development of a new policy, but the government did not pay much attention.”

The program for establishing a new national trade policy will be funded by HARAKAT and its implementation will be responsibility of BCTS, according to some reports.
