Afghanistan wants joint business venture with Assam
KABUL (Pajhwok): Shyada Mohammad Abdali, Afghan ambassador to India, said that his country was ready to sign Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Assam government to start joint business ventures with local investors.
“Lots of profits making business opportunities are yet to be tapped in Afghanistan which was ravaged by terrorist activities for over a decade. My country would like to share these opportunities with Assam and had personally discussed the matter with chief minister Tarun Gogoi for a MoU so that bilateral ties with my country and your state can flourish,” Abdali said at Assam-Afghanistan Business Session held in the Assam International Industrial Fair underway at Jorhat.
Afghanistan was ready for business with Assam, he said, adding that “we will encourage you for joint venture. After discussions with the chief minister, I propose here to Assam Chamber of Commerce for MoU. We have found common ground in terms of business in agriculture, tourism and many other sectors.”
He also added that the Afghan government liberalised the trade and economic policy of the country and introduced three-year entry visa for Indian nationals to do business there.
