Kabul (BNA) Economic growth and stability go hand in hand.
The opening of a new iron-processing factory in Herat city gives the province the economic power that comes with heavy industry.
The plant melts down old scrap metal, and can produce 100 tones of iron each day. “This is the first factory to process scrap metal in Herat.
We have enough scrap metal in storage to keep the factory running for a year,” said Dawood Shah Saba, the governor of Herat province.
The Minister of Commerce and Industries Anwarul Haq Ahadi continued, saying: “The factory is an important step towards decreasing our reliance on imported steel, and towards improving economic development. It can provide a large part of the steel required by Afghanistan each year.”
The factory was built by a private trader, and cost $8 million. It contains metal and modern equipment capable of handing different grades of metal.
The plant employs 300 people, including 50 foreigners with special technical skills. The inauguration of a new factory means more job opportunities, less crime and a better economy,” a Herat resident, Abdul Ghadir, wrapped up the benefits of the new factory. “Many people are worried about the foreigners leaving the country in 2014, but an investment like this shows that Afghans can become independent and stay in the country.
When a person has a job and earns money, he will co-operate with the government. There are, currently, 150 factories operating in Herat Industrial Park, employing 15,000 people. This is one example of the growth that is occurring across Afghanistan, laying the foundation for a peaceful and prosperous society.
