To boost exports, Afghanistan plans to launch online marketplace

Hassib Rahimi, an executive with the Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce and Industries (ACCI) recently told France’s AFP news agency that Afghanistan will launch it’s first-ever online marketplace to allow local Afghan businesses to export their products directly to world markets.

The effort will improve the Afghan economy as exports will be boosted and new jobs will be created. В “The project will be first launched in the big cities in a year. We also have plans for big campaigns to reach out the rural areas to enable people to sell their products,” Rahimi told AFP.

Through this new online marketplace, Afghans will be able to sell such items as agricultural produce, handicrafts, precious stones and carpets. According to the report, funding for the project ($20 million) will come from the UAE (United Arab Emirates) based Pride Group.
