KABUL (PAN): The newly-appointed Afghanistan Investment Support Agency (AISA) chief said he would introduce tax exemptions to help strengthen the industrial sector.

Wafiullah Eftikhar, who was appointed by President Hamid Karzai on the advice of AISA’s High Commission of Investment, pledged to improve the country’s overall investment environment.

As the industrial sector was vital to the nation’s economy, they would strive to improve financial support for them, the official promised at a gathering in Kabul.

Minister of Economy Abdul Hadi Arghandiwal agreed the government should introduce an effective policy to improve industrial units.

“Business markets may not bloom in the future the way they improved over the last few years. The government, therefore, should pay more attention to industries for economic growth,” he remarked.

Deputy Ministry of Industry and Commerce Muzammil Shinwari told Pajhwok Afghan News the ministry would support the industrial units in the framework of the relevant law and according to available resources.

Eftikhar, who holds a degree in business administration from Pakistan’s Peshawar University, asked his colleagues to share their knowledge and ideas to promote AISA services.
