The Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce and Investment said that 50 Afghan businessmen, led by a delegation from the chamber, participated in the 7th South Asia-China Import and Export Exhibition.
“In the exhibition section of this conference, about 50 Afghan businessmen have booths to display Afghan products and services in the exhibition, and a delegation from the Chamber of Commerce and Investment has also participated in the conference and exhibition,” said Khan Mohammad Sarfraz, an official of the Chamber of Commerce and Investment.
Mawlawi Abdul Kabir, the political deputy PM, said at the opening ceremony of the exhibition that holding such exhibitions can bring the countries of the region closer together.
“Organizing such exhibitions can bring regional countries closer together and increase trade opportunities. Governments are responsible for the progress of their people's economy,” said Mawlawi Abdul Kabir.
The political deputy PM who spoke online at the opening ceremony of the exhibition, also emphasized creating facilities for foreign investors inside the country.
"Economic and trade relations between Afghanistan and China are at a good level and both sides are trying to develop these relations. Two years ago, on August 15, when political changes occurred in Afghanistan, China was one of the first countries to which we were able to start exporting pine nuts,” said Mawlawi Abdul Kabir.
China is one of the countries that kept its embassy in Kabul open after the takeover of the Islamic Emirate in Afghanistan and also signed some commercial contracts with the current government, including for oil extraction in the Amu Darya area.
