Harakat is an independent, non-profit, and Afghan-led, organization aiming to improve Afghanistan's business environment. We work with the private sector, the government and civil society to implement activities aimed at reducing or removing barriers to business in Afghanistan. Harakat acts as a bridge between the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GoIRA) and the private sector. It is committed to supporting and fostering inclusive economic growth through the creation of the private sector in Afghanistan. Harakat aspires to strengthen industries across the country to create jobs, elevate people from poverty, and lead to the fiscal sustainability of GoIRA by increased taxes coming from sustainable businesses. .
