KABUL, Jan. 15 – A total of 150 foreign investors received licenses to invest in Afghanistan, so far since the advent of Islamic Emirate in August 2021, said officials at the ministry of industry and commerce.

The investors who received investment licenses are from the United States, China, Britain, Canada, Qatar, Poland, Netherlands, Pakistan, Iran, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Arab countries, the Ministry added.

“Some have already started practical work,” said Abdul Salam Akhundzada, a spokesman for the Ministry of Industry and Commerce.

The Chamber of Commerce and Investment welcomes foreign investment in Afghanistan, saying it will help the country.

Islamic Emirate has recently signed a contract with China’s CAPEIC (Xinjiang Central Asia Petroleum and Gas Co) Company for the extraction of oil in the Amu River basin, which covers a large area across parts of three northern provinces.
