Kabul (BNA) Afghanistan retains good investment opportunities with huge God gifted natural resources, untapped mines and competent human resources. The country invites foreign and domestic entrepreneurs to invest in various spheres & gain profit and contribute in the rehabilitation and renovation process of the war-devastated of Afghanistan. Afghanistan seriously requires investment of industrialist countries and foreign companies in diver’s fields to get rid of economic crisis and also to accelerate the momentum of economic growth in the country so to create job opportunities to the jobless countrymen to lead the war-shattered economy of the country towards progress. The Afghan government has determinedly endeavored to pave the way for the foreign and domestic investors and has ratified laws for encouraging them to spend their fund in different sectors in the country. Afghanistan holds huge untapped natural resources of gold, copper, iron, petroleum, gas, coal mines etc. Afghanistan with its rich mines and industrial material resources is a country, proper for establishing industrial factories. Currently it`s vital that national traders invest in various fields in Afghanistan and set up plants across the country so to manufacture the required merchandise and other essential materials for the countrymen. The process would also assist the jobless people to find employment opportunities and would strengthen the national industries of the country. So the Afghan government particularly the relevant ministry should adopt necessary measures and implement several projects across the country for industrialists, businessmen and finally the domestic and foreign investors for a stable and self-reliant Afghanistan. The realization of the process besides providing job opportunities for our countrymen would also help them in receiving new skills and our investors ought to work on mechanism and adopt necessary measures for expansion of industries in the war-devastated Afghanistan and provide employment chance to prevent from the brain drain. Looking over to markets and cities we witness the import of foreign goods by the Afghan traders that obviously benefits the foreigners and the country is changed to a consumer market of foreign low quality goods. Afghanistan`s economic growth entails domestic production and industries support and for successful implementation of the process, responsible organs should precisely work on plans to put the process in practice and prepare the ground for consuming of domestic products in the country.

Kabul (BNA) although the international  community support retains significant role in rehabilitation and development of the war-devastated Afghanistan but the country passes through critical juncture of its history. It`s while Afghan national security forces has taken the security responsibility for maintaining security in the country and also by 2014 foreign forces would pullout from Afghanistan based on the timeframe set for their evacuation. The holding of presidential and provincial council elections are also set to be held at the meantime so the Afghan nation should take benefit of this golden opportunity provided by the international community and for the successful implementation and realization of the above mentioned objectives should urgently adopt required measures and drew functional mechanism. Afghanistan after a long period of three decades of conflicts particularly in past decade has hold the support of the world society and the intl. community has accelerated the momentum of its cooperation and assistance with the war-torn Afghanistan in various spheres and has always expressed its readiness in renovation process of the country. So the Afghan nation should focus on strengthening of military and economy of the country and while these sectors get progress, practical changes would occur in other fields too and as a result; a prosperous sand stable future for Afghanistan would be guaranteed. In this crucial occasion the U.S and other industrialized states strong support and cooperation with the war-battered Afghanistan has huge importance and the Afghan government should take benefit of this golden opportunity. Fortunately, Afghanistan has signed strategic agreements with several countries of the world including the United State of America and these governments have assured their long-term assistance with Afghanistan in military, political, economic and other spheres. The U.S has said it will leave behind $6billion of military equipments to the Afghan national security forces and has pledged to train security forces and equip the Afghan air force. It`s while the NATO member countries have also promised and expressed their enthusiasm to assist Afghanistan in military and economic fields. For fostering of economic growth in the country we not only have natural resources and untapped mines worth trillion dollars but also many countries have shown willingness to invest in exploitation of these rich mineral resources. Many other industrial countries like India and China are also interested to invest in the country and would continue their financial assistance with Afghanistan so Afghans should endeavor to take the benefit of this chance and strengthen their military and economic foundations and if not they better know that the Afghan nation enemies pursue their destructive and terror schemes and further strive for disturbing of relations between Afghanistan and the international community. So Afghans nation should be aware and not let the country once again changed into the hub of insurgent activities and defend from the past one decade achievements in good manner.
