The United States government supports the show to help expand the Afghan economy and create a brighter future for the people of the war-ravaged country, Ambassador John Bass said in a video message on Tuesday.

He said the US wanted Afghanistan to succeed.  “We are committed to helping everyone in this societyinfo-icon working to create a future Afghanistan in which all its citizens can live in peace and dignity.  That includes Afghan businesses – the private sector,” he added.
