New building to be built in Baghlan and renovations begin in Ghazni
Afghanistan’s Bakhtar News Agency (BNA) reported today that the foundation stone of a new building for Baghlan University was laid down in Pul-e Khumri, the capital of Baghlan province. The new building will be 2 stories high, and will have both administrative and teaching sections. Once the building is completed, the issue of classroom shortage will be resolved, according to local Afghan education officials.
Meanwhile, in Ghazni province, Afghanistan’s Ministry for Information and Culture has announced that renovation work for 10 historic monuments started yesterday in the province. Ghazni’s provincial governor, Musa Khan Akbarzada, as well as other officials were present at a ceremony held to mark the event. In 2007, the Islamic Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) chose Ghazni as an Islamic Capital of Culture for the year 2013. Restorations are being made so the city will be ready when the cultural festivals begin.
