KABUL: The first Deputy Prime Minister Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar has urged Afghan investors to return to the nation, the Taliban government said in a statement. He made the remarks at the Afghan National Private Sector Conference in Kabul.
The statement read, "Baradar urged on Afghan investors living overseas to return to the nation and invest here, as the security of investors and their assets will be assured." "International sanctions are gradually being removed, and we are attempting to provide more facilities in industry, commerce, and investment, as well as attempts to boost the economy," Baradar was cited as saying.
According to Da Afghanistan Bank (DAB), the country's central bank, the World Bank board of directors decided on Tuesday to unfreeze USD 1 billion from the Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund, which had been frozen since the Taliban's takeover on August 15, 2021.
The Da Afghanistan Bank praised the World Bank's move as a goodwill gesture and called for more cooperation between the two institutions in the Afghan banking and financial sectors.
