Afghan Industry Grows with 121 New Factories in 1403

Akhundzada Abdul Salam Jawad, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Industry and Commerce, told TOLOnews that 121 factories were established in various sectors across the country in the current solar year 1403.

Akhundzada Abdul Salam Jawad said that during this period, 217 production machines have also been imported into the country by industrialists in the heavy, light, and primary sectors.

The spokesperson for the Ministry of Industry and Commerce said: "Since the beginning of the solar year 1403, 121 new factories have been established and 217 machines have been imported into Afghanistan.

This is while last year, 614 factories were established, and 1,098 machines were imported into the country. 

This indicates an increase in investment and production within the country. These machines belong to the heavy, light, and primary industrial sectors."

The Afghanistan Chamber of Industries and Mines believed that if more facilities are provided for industrialists in the country, domestic industries will witness significant growth.

Sakhi Ahmad Paiman, the first deputy of the Chamber of Industries and Mines, told TOLOnews: "Fortunately, this year we have witnessed industrial investments in Afghanistan. The heavy and light industries, as much as they are supported, are important for the growth of Afghanistan's industry in terms of energy supply, land distribution, and also the increase in tariffs on similar imported goods."

Some economic experts also emphasized the support of industrialists in the country, saying that a large part of Afghanistan's needs is met by domestic industrial productions.

"Production factories are operating in the absence of ample economic facilities. If some facilities and ease are provided for the public factories, including grants, ensuring needs such as energy, and small loans, it will play a significant role in strengthening our production factories," said Shakir Yaqubi, an economic analyst.

"Our production factories currently do not have land; they face many problems due to the lack of land and electricity," said Shams Rahman Ahmadzai, another economic analyst.

According to statistics from the Chamber of Industries and Mines, more than 5,000 factories in various sectors operate in 18 industrial parks in the country, bringing Afghanistan to self-sufficiency and semi-self-sufficiency in some sectors.
