Afghanistan a country of opportunity-MoM

IT iS a privilege for me to draw your attention to this Mining Journal special supplement on Afghanistan. Mining in Afghanistan has a history dating back over 6,000 years, and despite all the upheavals over the past 25 years, mining has continued to operate. The main task facing us now is to expand the industry from its present small base. The Government regards the development of Afghanistan’s natural resources as the most impor- tant driver of economic growth, and essential to the reconstruction and development of the country. in order to achieve this growth, Afghanistan must become established as a globally competitive and attractive destination for investment in mineral and hydrocarbon exploration. Development of these resources must be effectively regulated to promote a healthy and sustainable industry for the benefit of the people of Afghanistan.
