Why Participate in Ariana ICT?
Afghanistan is gearing up for a new era of growth and recovery after years of violence and conflict. The country aims to draw on the experience of neighboring states and its young and ambitious workforce to boost welfare and expand infrastructure.
Afghanistan’s roadmap for development presents a timely opportunity for Iran and Afghanistan to significantly increase bilateral trade, with both countries having long insisted on pushing economic ties to next level.
The expansion of communication backbones translates into rapid developments in the ICT sector and a new wave of investments. As part of Afghanistan’s development plans, the country’s 1st International Information and Communications Technology Exhibition is planned to be held in April 2019, providing regional and international participants with the following opportunities:
- Obtain extensive insight into Afghanistan’s market of 36 million people
- Find local and global partners to start your business
- Promote your products, services and potential
- Find new investment opportunities
Afghanistan’s mountainous terrain poses is a natural disadvantage to expanding communication networks. However, the Afghan government has carried out extensive work to develop its communications infrastructure.
An estimated 23.7 million of Afghanistan’s 36 million people are mobile users with the population of internet users bordering on 10 million. Broadening access to internet is a top national priority. Fiber-optic network has been installed in 25 states along with plans to expand coverage across the nine remaining states in two years and substantial plans to launch e-government systems.
Suitable Investment Law
Raising investment is imperative to Afghanistan’s development plans. The government has worked hard to streamline and simplify investment regulations for foreign investors and its new foreign investment framework has received positive feedback from experts.
