Global community backs Afghan economic reforms

Apr 22, 2018 - 15:22

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Major economic powers and international institutions have announced support for Afghanistaninfo-icon’s economic programmes and the government’s reform agenda.

A statement from the Afghan embassy in Washington said on Sunday the support pledge came during a meeting attended by representatives of major economies and Finance Minister Eklil Hakimi.

Hakimi briefed representatives of the international community about progress in implementation of Afghanistan’s reform agenda over the past two years and economic activities in the war-torn country.

Hakimi said Afghanistan had kept its promises within the National Framework it had pledged to evolve at the Brussels Conference. Some of the targets had been achieved in a shorted time, he claimed.

The finance minister said a new system for revenue collection was being established to help boost Afghanistan’s annual revenue from six billion afghanis to nine billion afghanis.

Representatives of the USAIDinfo-icon, European Union, Worldinfo-icon Bank, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Denmark, Australia, Canada and other countries attended the huddle.
