Kabul (BNA) Despite having plants and other industrial items such as cotton, pelt and silk that are used, unfortunately during over three decades of war, the cloth-weaving factories like Gulbahar Textile Mills, Pul-i-Khomri, Herat, Kandahar woolen factory as well as Ahu Shoe making factory that previously despite domestic requirements.
Their products are exported aboard too are damaged and remained inactive.
Although, because of being as land locked country having no honest neighbors at the same time being self-interested, this country has been kept backward in the course of history. Effort made by neighbors for keeping Afghanistan backward aims this country be a selling market for offering their Low-quality products. This negative aim of neighbors is imposed in Afghanistan during long years through ruling the weak governments in this country. But no doubt, existence limited factories in the country provide employment for great number of people and never eligible labors were suffering from unemployment like to day. Although, the privilege of labor force was not as much as to day, but having assurance for providing job opportunity was not a matter of concern for unemployment. Now, with the presence of international community in Afghanistan, a golden opportunity was available for government and other organs concerned to rehabilitate such factories and provide of employment for unemployed labors. But, unfortunately because of luck of healthy management, all opportunities alongside billions of dollars are lost vainly and any factory that could absorb a great number of unemployed neither were not rehabilitated nor new factories are not established. As minister of economy Abdul Hadi Arghandiwal addressing a seminar held recently in Kabul to pave the way for long-term employment, said that unfortunately, we had no codified modern economic policy so to respond the national requirements. Arghandiwal added that now. 99 percent labor forces of Afghanistan either unemployed or have imperfect work. This is in a time that during last eleven years, effective and managed work ought to be done, so the problems faced by us today are removed. Now, that based a schedule, the foreign forces to leave Afghanistan at the end of 2014, their contribution would be reduced. Nothing would prove effective, because. We lost the golden opportunity was available in that time. Likewise, recently, providing a stable employment conference has commenced its work in Afghanistan. In a message addressed to times conference by the president, it is mentioned that the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan replaced facilitating suitable job for unemployed through development of skills and arrangement of better labor market is the government strategic priorities and the ministry of labor and social affairs is tasked so for its implementation, this ministry should design and implement necessary programs. Now that over eleven years have been passed since commencing contribution of international community especially the USA contribution to Afghanistan in the fields of military, economic affairs, why such programs are not offered so the people didn’t suffered from unemployment. The government must also not sink in such deep corruption. In present situation that Afghanistan is invaded through various dimensions by neighbors and foreign countries, how we rescue our country through a reasonable plans. The experts believe that the past eleven years was a good opportunity for making our country self-sufficient that is lost. Even the main aims that were maintain security and counterterrorism are not met. Now, with existence of donor nations, the northern parts of the country are targeting by our self-interested neighbors and one of police martyred and another one is injured. Why the foreign military forces don’t replace the invading forces on their place. In such a condition the country needs to a healthy management so to benefit from existence of foreign forces. In every aspects of life as we didn’t benefit from the opportunity was available during one decade and as the aim behind signing of strategic cooperation agreements is maintenance security in the country and defending against aggressors. What is the benefit of signing such agreements while our country is invaded by neighbors. If the foreign forces don’t show reaction before foreign invasion in Afghanistan, their existence in Afghanistan would come under question.
