LASHKARGAH (PAN): The governor of southern Helmand province, Mohammad Gulab Mangal, has urged donor countries to provide assistances for different development projects in the world's biggest opium-producing region.

Mangal was speaking to the UAE ambassador and representatives of US, UK, Denmark and Japan embassies, as well as Asian Development Bank and World Bank at the governor's office in Lashkargah, the province capital, late on Monday.

Mangal briefed the team on his government's performance and progress achieved in various sectors over the past three years. The governor acknowledged the UK, the US, Denmark and the UAE had assisted a number of projects in different sectors.

He said Japan had evinced a keen interest in assisting reconstruction schemes in the province. He urged assistances for the promotion of agriculture and education sectors.
