The current Afghan government said there are plans for mining and water management projects, as well as projects in other areas, to be launched this year.
The deputy spokesperson of the Islamic Emirate, Bilal Karimi, emphasized that the current government supports domestic and foreign investors and is providing opportunities for them.
"The Islamic Emirate will focus attention on the projects that are very crucial for the country's infrastructure, for example, the management of water, in mining ... as well as in the health and education sector, and other sectors where there is a need," Karimi noted.
Economists say development efforts in the country are currently weak and poverty and unemployment have not decreased in Afghanistan.
"The investments made are insufficient, and the results show that even half-completed development projects were not completed. And because the World Bank and foreign nations did not support them, the initiatives that were scheduled to begin did not,” said Sayed Masoud, an economist.
Some residents of Kabul asked the Islamic Emirate to do more to eradicate poverty in the country.
“We will be happy if some help is given to us. We are poor people. I am the sole breadwinner of a family of seven members,” said Mohammadullah, a resident of Kabul.
"We want this government to be recognized, and we also want to see a reduction in the level of poverty and despair among the people. We ask our government to bring peace to our nation,” said Sayed Ahmad, another resident of Kabul.
According to data provided by the UN, more than 700,000 people have lost their employment in Afghanistan during the past 1.5 years.
