As human forces, Afghanistan, can provide the youth with job facilities and put a permanent end to the poverty. By building power and water dams on the great roaring rivers of the country to produce electricity, and irrigate the vast arid deserts with potential agricultural capacity, along with this, industrial parks should be built in the country in order to entice foreign and domestic investors to invest in the industrial production and factories and other long term projects, as well as to tackle insecurity, lack of electricity and provide convenience for the people.
Only then the insecure economic condition of Afghanistan will be rehabilitated with the help of which the poverty and employment of youth and other people will be addressed and way will be paved for the economic development of the country. By this way our war-torn and backward country will very soon stand by its own feet and will come to the competence of developed nations.

According to domestic investors thousands of old operating productive industries and factories has stopped due to insecurity, lack of electricity and other problems which cause the unemployment and poverty of thousand youths and other people and consequently severely damage the economy of the country .
The main cause of standstill of these productive projects from one side is lack of electricity, land and security and from the other side lack of markets for the exhibition of their products and the import and use of foreign products in the country.
It is the national and responsibility of ministries of economy, finance, commerce and industry and other related organs and even of Afghan traders and people to pave the way for the sale of domestic products in domestic and foreign markets.
Through this process they should lure the owners of factories, industries and the owner of other economic projects and stand them economically by their own feet. The investors and traders of Afghanistan should also produce qualitative products in their factories and present them in affordable price to the customers and by this way trounced foreign products and create market for the own products.
Otherwise they will lose the markets of their products and will confront great economic problems.
