Emphasis on fighting graft to minimize procurement process in Afghanistan

zakhilwalAddressing the National Procurement Conference in Kabul, Finance Minister Dr. Hazrat Omar Zakhilwal cited lack of transparency and interference as the main reasons behind the high project costs in the country.

The Minister said despite the presence of internationally accepted law procurement process in Afghanistan is problematic that feeds corruption.

“If better opportunities are provided, the perception about corruption in the procurement process will be minimized,” Pajhwok Afghan News quotes Minister Zakhilwal.

This comes as concerns about efficient utilization of the development budget are on the rise and government’s responsibility has also increased with the transition process.

According to Zakhilwal, procurement efficiency and simplification result in transparency and effectiveness and will encourage investors and donors.
