Afghanistan calls for investments by Iranian firms

Press TV / February 21, 2010

Afghanistan invites Iranian firms to help develop economic cooperation between the two countries by investing in different fields in the country.

“Afghanistan imports goods worth $5 billion per year but the country would be able to produce half of the goods inside the country through a cooperation with Iranian investor companies,” said Noorullah Delawari, Afghan State Minister and President of Afghanistan Investment Support Agency on Saturday, during a visit to Iran Foreign Investment Company.

He mentioned vast mineral resources in Afghanistan as one of the grounds that could attract Iranian companies.

Delawari invited Iranian companies to invest in fields such as power plants, cement factories, metal industries and construction materials such as building stones.

”Afghanistan has been able to attract investments worth $8bn despite security problems,” he said.
