To convince the international community in the upcoming Geneva Conference

Afghanistan has made 90 percent of it`s commitments to the world community

The Afghan government has fulfilled ‘almost 90 percent’ of its commitments made to international partners in order to secure continued assistance, the acting minister of finance, Abdul Hadi Arghandiwal, said on Saturday.

Arghandiwal said the Afghan government is confident it will convince the international community in the upcoming Geneva Conference on Afghanistan to continue its assistance to Afghanistan.
 
“We will go to the conference with accomplishments and we will convince members of the conference to continue supporting Afghanistan, in view of the current circumstances,” said Arghandiwal. 
 
But members of Afghan parliament and the private sector have said that the government has not managed to act upon its stated policies in terms of facilitating investments, reducing corruption and increasing national revenues.
 
“The Afghan government failed to take advantage of the assistance over the past several years, it also failed to fulfill the commitments it made to the international community,” said Sakhi Ahmad Paiman, deputy head of the Chamber of Commerce of Afghanistan.
 
“The commitments that are made by the government officials have not been implemented,” said Yousuf Mohmand, an Afghan investor.
 
The Government of Afghanistan, Finland and the United Nations are co-hosting the 2020 Afghanistan Conference on November 23-24 in Geneva.
 
The 2020 Afghanistan Conference is a milestone event in Afghanistan’s journey to peace, prosperity and self-reliance.
 
The aim of the conference is to renew international and Afghan commitments to the development and stability of Afghanistan, to agree to joint development goals for 2021-24 and to coordinate development cooperation regarding financial support for Afghanistan.
