FICCI-UN-ESCAP South and South-West Asia office paper on Doing Business with Afghanistan
Situated strategically at the heart of Asia, Afghanistan is a land bridge connecting South Asia with Central Asia, Eurasia and the Middle East. Emerging from twenty five years of conflict, Afghanistan, one of the poorest countries of the world, had performed better than the strong performers among the comparable countries in terms of broad macroeconomic indicators. Immense opportunities exist for potential investors in Afghanistan. This paper provides an overview of the sectoral opportunities available in Afghanistan, including a brief introduction of recent changes in the economy, regulation and how to get your business started there.
