KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): A two-day campaign to encourage people to buy local products has been launched in western Herat province, the provincial governor said on Wednesday.

Syed Wahid Qatali told Pajhwok Afghan News the purpose of the campaign was to encourage people to use local agricultureinfo-icon products and promote domestically produced goods.  He said all security and defense institutions, jails and lock ups had been directed to use local products.

Qatali stressed a halt to import of products available at home and said in future a factory to examine the quality of chemical products would be established as well. He said the campaign would help encourage people to use local products.

Abdul Ahad, in charge of an agriculture union in Herat, said: “Our sales volume is down due to the lack of government support to local products. Local products are not welcomed among people thus our production is very low,” he said.

Herat residents also asked people to use local products in order to encourage local companies and production.
