Japanese firm to rebuild Kabul airport airfield
The Dai Nippon Construction, with a legacy of working on projects in Afghanistan, was given the contract last month, a statement from the embassy said.
It added: "The project will start from March 2012 and is scheduled for completion by September 2013."
Speaking at the signing ceremony, Afghan Ambassador to Japan Dr. Sayed M. Amin Fatimie said the project was important because it helped Afghanistan's efforts to create effective transport systems.
