HAMGAM BA ROYDADHA: Ghani Stressed On Domestic Products Increase
Addressing a local products expo in Kabul on Saturday, President Ashraf Ghani said the government must support the local products and improve the trade balance in the country.
“People’s lives will not change unless we improve the trade balance of Afghanistan. One-third of our people sleep with empty stomachs every night,” Ghani said.
He said to reach the goal, the private sector and government should work together to improve the country’s economy.
Ghani said lack of coordination between government and the private sector has resulted that Afghanistan annually imports goods worth $1.5 billion USD.
He reiterated that Afghanistan should turn into an exporter country in the future.
