Led by Qatari Businessmen Association Chairman Sheikh Faisal Bin Qasim Althani, the Qatari delegation met with President Hamid Karzai to discuss investment opportunities in Afghanistan.

According to the spokesperson for the Afghanistan Investment Support Agency (AISA) Rohullah Ahmadzai, an Afghan delegation of government officials and private sector representatives would travel to Qatar in the next two weeks to further confer on the agreements signed with the Qatar-based Makin Group of Companies.

President Karzai had met with a group of investors in Qatar in March of this year and encouraged them to invest in Afghanistan as it works to secure stability before NATO-led combat forces withdraw next year.

Karzai had said that his country has tremendous business opportunities. Investment in any sector of the economy; be it is mining, quarrying, power generation, cement industry, housing, retail, banking, civil aviation and hospitality industry, all the sectors will give good returns. “Afghanistan is ready to welcome you with open arms and a happy heart. Investment in any sector will give good returns. Especially, investment in power generation and housing construction will see immediate returns.”

Sheikh Althani laid down the red carpet for Afghan businessmen and encouraged them to invest in Qatar, where they would be offered best opportunities.
