We believe that regional cooperation is an important measure that will ensure prosperity of the people of this region. 
By understanding this clear fact the Afghan government has prioritized working for regional cooperation and shall not refrain from efforts in realization of this policy and approach. 
Afghanistan will render continued cooperation with the regional foundations towards implementation of the regional cooperation. 
We have designed our national development program in a way which will prove effective in regional participation and they will benefit our regional partners. 
Now that we are taking steps towards economic development of Afghanistan, this directly or indirectly will benefit our neighbors as well.

We have opened our markets and regional trade exchanges for the benefit of this region and we are trying to prepare appropriate grounds for regional investments and regional transit as well. 
Fortunately Afghanistan owing to its rich resources and geographical location it has in this region can play a very significant role in implementation of regional cooperation. 
Afghanistan in the heart of Asia as a land bride can easily link and unite the regional markets and people. 
Such a link can change the complexion of this region and this will naturally assist us to realize this aspiration. 
TAPI and KASA 1000 will soon pass through Afghanistan and this will help millions of people in central and south Asia. 
Afghanistan’s resources such as iron, copper and precious stones can feed the regional industries. 
The railway line that we are going to build up undoubtedly can remove the distance in this region and will better shape goods exchanges. 
In the light of these possibilities the regional cooperation is important for Afghanistan. 
In the four rounds of this conference in Kabul, Delhi, Islamabad and Istanbul the fundamental principles of economic development of Afghanistan were described. 
We hope that the fifth round of this conference open a new chapter for development of such programs that will positively impact regional cooperation. 
Those programs Incorporated in the final statement of this conference should pave the way for realizing our requirements and this conference should move the regional economic cooperation from words towards practice.

Let us stretch our hands to each other and this overcomes the problems and problems from the path of our people through close cooperation. 
Prosperity, security and moral and material development is not a wealth monopoly that will belong to few nations in this world. 
We can also reach ourselves to this humanitarian and righteous objective. 
The basic condition in attaining this success is close cooperation of our regional partners and such cooperation will succeed when we seek the prosperity of our people in welfare of others and become partner with other.
