Public Private Dialogue for Dubai- based National Investors & Businesses

An effective step to the economic growth of the country

 

Harakat- Afghanistan Investment Climate Facility Organization (H-AICFO) is organizing the events of (Public Private Dialogue PPD and Investment Roadshow for Investment Opportunities in Public Private Partnership) in Dubai on 13th and 14th September 2020.

These events aim to increase awareness about the Public Private Partnership (PPP) opportunities, strengthen investment in the country and its role on the economic growth.  Investment promotion is one of the top priorities of the government of Afghanistan. While it is absolutely true that investment is the engine of economic growth, it is equally true that a supportive, healthy public sector creates the climate where growth flourishes.

Since Dubai hosts the largest Afghan business community thus Harakat founds that there is a strong need for a formal direct dialogue between GoA and Dubai based Afghan businessmen to seek their views and interest for investment in Afghanistan. We also believe that Dubai based Afghan business community views have not been reflected in the GoA reform plans, thus it is important that their views are heard and addressed in order to have them invest in Afghanistan.

 Similarly, Harakat intends to showcase potential investment opportunities through PPPs and other platforms in Afghanistan in collaboration with relevant GoA entities. This event will allow Ministry of Finance to showcase 16 projects for potential investors in Dubai.

Harakat is a non-political body that connects government with the private sector, to find common reform interests to identify the private sector issues and to get them resolved. Harakat’s aim is to make Afghanistan a better place to do business.
