Afghanistan is becoming an attractive place for large and small-scale investments. There are many opportunities for economic cooperation both with public and private sectors.

Opportunities for North American companies in Afghanistan include investing in building infrastructure, bringing advanced technology, strengthening a professionally skilled workforce for different industries including the mining sector, and exploring areas of cooperation in extracting natural resources. Afghanistan is one of the richest countries on earth in terms of underground resources such as oil, gas, lithium, copper, gold, marble, and various types of precious stones.

In agriculture sector, investors are welcome to create food storages and processing centers in the provinces to help farmers maximize benefit, create more jobs, and export quality products to the region. Afghanistan has some of the best fresh fruits that can be processed to more lasting items. Afghanistan’s agricultural products such as the highest quality saffron worldwide and dried fruits that can be exported to North America.

Information communication technology (ICT) is another shinning area that has attracted investors from around the world.
