Metin who is leading a 25 member business delegation in Kabul said the private sector in Turkey is also willing to invest in Afghanistan’s mining, energy production and agriculture sectors.
Meanwhile officials from the Afghan Chamber of Commerce and Industries (ACCI) called on Turkey to help Afghanistan to use the Lapis Lazuli route.
“We need the Turkish government to help Afghanistan in the transfer of goods between the two countries through the Lapis Lazuli route,” said ACCI deputy chief Khan Jan Alokozai.
“Turkey has developed well in the production of raw material, we are ready to provide you with the raw material, we prefer Afghanistan in this area than the other countries,” said Metin.
“Afghanistan has a lot of capacity to generate electricity and solar power in the view of its major water resources, this country also has major opportunities to export fresh fruits to the world. InshaAllah, Turkish investors are willing to invest in these areas,” said Suleyman, chairman of the Turkish business council.
