Acting Minister of Petroleum and Mines Shahabuddin Delawar said that currently the conditions for investment in the country are provided for and foreign companies are interested in investing in the mining sector.
In the meeting with the representative of the RDS company of America and Britain, he also emphasized investing in the mining sector of the country.
“Different companies from different countries come to see and visit with the Minister of Petroleum and Mines and they present and discuss the whole process of mining and most of them are ready to invest in the sector,” said Zabiullah Mujahid, spokesman for Islamic Emirate.
The Chamber of the Industry and Mines said that the Islamic Emirate should also contribute to the assignment of mining contracts to domestic companies and that the processing of mines should also take place inside the country.
“We hope that it will be noticed that Afghanistan's main mines will be processed in the country itself and the laws that hindered investment in the past will be encouraged, especially large companies in countries that need Afghanistan's mines,” said Sakhi Ahmad Payman, deputy of the chamber.
But economic experts say that in order to attract large investments in the country, it is necessary to first remove the banking restrictions imposed by the international community.
"The government should first give this satisfaction to the international community, especially in the commercial and economic sectors, they should allow large foreign companies to invest in Afghanistan,” said Mohammad Nabi Afghan, an economist.
Earlier, the Ministry of Mines and Petroleum said that in the past two years, contracts worth nearly seven billion dollars have been signed in the mining sector.
