Afghanistan soon to issue multi-entry visas for Indian businessmen to boost investmentNew Delhi, Nov 20 (KNN) Afghanistan will soon open up multi-entry visas to Indian entrepreneurs who are willing to invest there, Afghan ambassador to India has said.
Ambassador Shaida Mohammad Abdali yesterday said that the process of issuing multiple-entry visa to the Indian business community intending to invest in Afghanistan is likely to be completed shortly to help the country tap the myriad opportunities.
The Afghan envoy was addressing a conference on Doing Business with Afghanistan organised by FICCI and the external affairs ministry.
The ambassador sought the assistance of the internationally community including India and its industry to support the ongoing initiatives of his country to enable it to attract overseas investments to rebuild its socio- economic fabric as per aspirations of its people.
He said the transition process in Afghanistan would enable it to return to a secure atmosphere in which overseas investments would be well protected.
He also hoped that potential investors would take note of this process and invest in Afghanistan with an open mind.
The ambassador, however, cautioned that gains to investors would follow provided they have prepared for risks which can be managed in an emerging country like Afghanistan which has seen a considerable period of over a decade or so of internal turbulence. (KNN/SD)
