“Most of our business ties are with Tajikistan, if its consulate is reopened, it will be a huge relief for us.”

Deputy Governor Hashmatullah said the provincial government was concerned about shifting of most of businesses to other provinces.

He assured that the concerned authorities were trying to resolve all problems being faced by businessmen in order promote trade and business activities.
