MAZAR-I-SHARIF (PANinfo-icon): A market expansion programme was launched small private-sector entities in northern Balkh province to development, officials said on Thursday.

Already executed in Kabulinfo-icon, Nangarhar and Herat provinces, programme would be implemented at a cost of $22 million provided by the Worldinfo-icon Bank, a Ministry of Commerce official said.

Abdul Rahim Syedi told reporters: “The focus of the programme will be on improving the quality of Afghan products, their sorting and designing.” Product marketing is part of the project.
