AT-KABUL: The Annual Investment Meeting (AIM) agency, a body monitoring the Central Asia’s investments, granted the best investment award for 2015 to the Afghanistan Investment Support Agency (AISA).
The AIM is launched by United Arab Emirates every year with the aim to improve investment ties and discussion over trade issues at international level.
The investment award is granted annually to the active administrations with outstanding achievements for supporting and encouraging investment.
The award was handed over to the head of AISA Mohammad Qurban Haqjo by UAE Minister of Economy, Sultan Bin Saeed Al Mansouri, as the international economists recognize the AISA as an active agency in support and encouraging investment.
“The AIM termed AISA as the best facilitator of the national and international private sector among entire Central Asia countries,” the AISA said in a statement.
Haqjo termed the award as an honor for supporting investment in Afghanistan, saying that AISA was committed to provide facilities to the national and international businessmen in this country.
President Ashraf Ghani recently ordered the integration of AISA to the ministry of commerce and industries.
