FAIZABAD (Pajhwok): The Raghistan district in northeastern Badakhshan province celebrated the opening of a new administrative building on Monday, a statement from the German Cooperation with Afghanistaninfo-icon said.

Civil servants of the district administration now have a better work environmentinfo-icon, helping them to improve their performance and provide better services to the local population.

The building was set up by the Badakhshan governor’s office at a cost of 33 million afghanis from the Federal Republic of Germany. The new two-storey administrative building will house the district governor’s office.

Key government departments such as educationinfo-icon, finance, agricultureinfo-icon, district court, rural development and municipal offices will be housed in the building. In addition, 15 offices, a conference hall, a kitchen and sanitary facilities provide 50 civil servants with a better working environment.

Abdul Rashid Ibrahimi, the governor's representative, said at the opening ceremony: ”The people of Raghistan will benefit from the building as the district civil servants will provide better services to the population.”

Ibrahimi and Rustam Khan, Raghistan’s district governor, were joined by 100 civil servants, head of the District Development Assembly (DDA), Community Development Council (CDC) chief, as well as religious leaders and elders.

The construction of the building is aimed at providing local communities with better government services. The building is a new point of contact for the district population which faces social, cultural and economic challenges.

Improved facilities will support the district’s civil servants in providing the necessary services to the inhabitants. As a consequence, the profile of Raghistan’s district government can be strengthened.

The financial means came from the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). As part of the Afghan-German Cooperation programme, the RCDF is implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaftfür Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.

The RCDF provides support for its Afghan partners’ development priorities both on provincial and district levels in six of Afghanistan’s northern provinces.
