China-Afghanistan discussing construction of an exhibition center in Kabul

Afghanistan is in talks with Chinese officials over the building of a permanent exhibition center in Kabul.

The Chinese are thinking about building the center near the Chaman-e-Huzori (green field), close to Ghazi stadium in Kaart-e-Naw, Kabul.

Presently, commercial exhibitions pay about USD 20,000 in rent per exhibition.

Permanent exhibition centers would help bring down the cost of exhibitions for industries and foreign institutions.

“We are trying to open more exhibition centers for domestic products and also to have exhibition regulations approved,” said Deputy Minister of Commerce and Industries Muzamal Shinwari.

According to reports, the plan for a China-funded exhibition center was floated two years ago but the Afghan government did not show sufficient interest so the plans were withdrawn.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Chamber of Commerce and Industries has also been approached with regards to building a permanent center for Afghan and Pakistani products.
