KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): President Ashraf Ghani on Monday said his government was ready to use domestic fabrics in making the Afghan army uniform in order to support the local textile industry.

The president, who met with Afghanistaninfo-icon Chamber of Commerce and Industries (ACCI) officials at the Presidential Palace, said industry development was crucial to the country’s economic progress.

A statement from the Presidential Palace said industrialists thanked the president for his attention to the development of the country’s industry.

The industrialists said Afghanistan was fully self-reliant in production of 32 industrial products and semi self-reliant in other sectors.

They showed their readiness to invest more in the industry sector and praised the government’s efforts at preventing smuggling of products.

President Ashraf Ghani termed industrialists’ role in the country’s development as important and hailed their efforts.

“The government is ready for all kind of support to see the industry improving and there is a special program in this regard,” the statement quoted Ghani as saying.

The president asked the industrialists to invest in the wind and solar energy as well as in textile and said the government was ready to give investors land and park for producing solar energy.

He said the uniform of the Afghan army should be made from domestic textile.

On the other hand, Ghani said: “Prevention of illegal trafficking of goods is a priority, we have already controlled illegal trafficking at Torkham port, the government will also try to prevent it on all routes.”
