Sunday February 18, 2018

The coordinator of the exhibition Zuhal Qadami said that this exhibition has been held by Promote Project with the cooperation of National Gallery of the MoIC and its goal is empowerment of women. These ladies are capable to produce handicrafts but lack possibility to organize exhibition and we want to show that women are capable to work, produce and management. In this exhibition different embroidery clothes, jewelries, paintings and foods have been displayed that represent and reflected our culture. Qadami went to say, our main goal is to show ladies talents as most of capable ladies are living in rural areas who own special talent in Promote Project, every trainee was paid US$ 60 and we managed to hold exhibition.
Talking on the project, Madina Astana one of the students of the course said that Promote Project is for empowering of women by women for women in two sections of Jawanaha and Royesh. In Royesh section the trainees are taught six months theoretically including three months practice in government and NGO to learn work for future employment. She added, in Javanaha section, three months theoretical including one month practice. The trainees select their project and present a report of implementation to relevant office. We learnt in Javanaha section and held this exhibition. Women can sell their products and earn income. The trainees can address violence against women, huge dowry etc. She continued, Promote wants to know how is the level of ladies’ inability, how they plan a program so their primary programs be changed to a project. In this program we chose this exhibition to evaluate our capability. Because there are ladies who have products but don’t afford to pay shop rent. So we chose National Gallery which is a proper place for exhibition. Talking on holding of this exhibition, in charge of National Gallery Sabera Rahmani said, such exhibitions show capabilities of talented girls and provide essential opportunities for youth and ladies. They have capability to perform better work and innovate in different fields particularly in arts, handicrafts.
She added, large number of ladies are living in rural villages who have high talents but cannot display their talents to people. These young girls collect their products from different places and display them in these exhibitions which is one of the positive activities of these girls. This exhibition had large visitors and was appreciated. Sayed Enayatullah Asadi director of exhibition of National Gallery said, so far we have organized 38 exhibitions according to order of the MoIC and all personnel have taken part in decor and design of exhibition, which have been opened by acting MoIC Prof. Bawari. Assadi added, we plan to organize three more exhibitions including carpet weaving, Refugee Children on the street and the world women day.

Kabul (BNA) The 3rd Afghan-Iran businessmen’s meeting is expected to be held in Tehran. Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce and Industries has said that the three-day meeting would discuss expansion of trade and transit relations between the two countries.
The two countries’ representatives would also talk about how to make a joint investment in various fields, as spokesman of the chamber, Siam Peserlay told media that creation of Afghanistan banks’ branches in Iran, expansion of infrastructures in the Chabahar Port, absorbing and providing ground for expansion of trade relations between the two countries, are expected to be among the key issues discussed in the meeting.
The Iranian side would also be convinced to invest in Afghanistan, said the spokesman. Meantime, an economic expert, Qais Mohammadi said that Iran can be a good trade partner for Afghanistan, as the neighboring country enjoys proper Asian-wide trade standards. According to the statistics of the chamber of commerce and industries, the volume of trade between the two countries reaches to two billion each year. Likewise, Shirali Tazri welcomed the meeting and called it a good omen for development of business between the two countries and that Afghanistan is hoped to reach highly developed economic level in the future. “Afghanistan, during the war years, didn’t enjoy good product condition to beef up its domestic products, so, it forced to import its domestic needs from the neighboring countries,” said Tazri.
He added that Pakistan was also willing to impose loss on the people and traders of Afghanistan, by blocking the its port, but fortunately, after practically inauguration of the Chabahar Port, Afghanistan’s goods would reach to the central Asian and other countries, helping the countries’ dependence on Pakistan reduce. The port would help Afghanistan export its commercial goods to Indian and then to the central Asian markets. He said the three-day meeting, besides tackling trade challenges, would also be important in resolving political issues, as well as would lay positive impact on the peace process. He hoped such meetings would also be held with Pakistan and it should be convinced that economic relation shouldn’t be victimized by political problems.
