Inauguration of a cold storage room in Baghlan Province

Officials of the High Peace Council in Baghlan announced the establishment of a cold storage room with a capacity of 100 tons of agricultural products.

Chief of the provincial Council Samadi Stanekzai said the cold storage room is built in Gawswar village of the Pulkhumri city at a cost of USD 75,000 with financial collaboration from the Council.

He added that the cold storage is a good facility for the farmers to store their agri-products.

baghlan jpgSituated in the North of Afghanistan, Baghlan has witnessed some reconstruction and development projects in the past few years.

Cold storage rooms, market access and distribution of improved seeds are the basic needs of Afghan farmers throughout the country.

The farmers have repeatedly approached the government to meet their demands. However, they claim the government has failed to take sufficient actions in this regard.

According to reports, more than 80% of Baghlan residents are engaged in farming.

Mr. Stanekzai said that the Council is planning to establish three more cold storage rooms in Bagh Shamal, Chashma Jangan Dahneh Ghori and Madreseh Lar Khwabi at cost of USD 225,000.

Construction of roads, cold storage rooms and embankments in some of the provinces are some of the achievements of the Council.
