Zakhelwal assuages investors' concerns
"Some investors have reduced their capitals in Afghanistan, but they need not to worry about their investments beyond 2014," Zakhelwal told Pajhwok Afghan News in an interview.
He said negative romours forecasting a bleak future were being spread by individuals or groups with a vested interest.
The minister said some businessmen fearing instability with foreign troops pullout had withdrawn their investments from the country.
"People remain concerned about the safety of their capitals in a foreign country. In Afghanistan, the reality is that no change will come to the system and the security will be more better than the current," the finance minister.
"2013 and 2014 are the years of opportunities for investors in Afghanistan because we will have a further enhanced security and a strong administration," Zakhelwal said.
