KABUL: A senior official of the Islamic Emirate instructed the government bodies to present their proposals to counter the existing economic crisis in the country.
Talking at an economic conference in Kabul on Sunday, the First Deputy of Prime Minister, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar promised to offer tremendous efforts to tackle the ongoing crisis in the country.
“I instruct the officials of all ministries and departments to share their short- and long-term plans for economic development with us,” he said.
He pledged the government would pave the ground for the investors to invest in Afghanistan.
Afghanistan is going through a dire humanitarian condition, with millions of people are facing starvation.
Addressing the same conference, the Second Deputy of Prime Minister, Abdul Salam Hanafi, stressed countering corruption, saying that administrative corruption has significantly dropped.
“We support the private sectors to improve the economy in Afghanistan and to attract investors to invest in various fields in the country,” he said.
This comes as over 9 billion dollars of Afghan assets are still remained in freeze by the US and international community since the Islamic Emirate swept into power.
