I have devoted most of my professional life to the construction and civil engineering industries. Even if cancer and disability no longer allow me to carry out 100% of the activities I did before, I will use my experience and my contacts to stimulate foreign companies to invest in the transport infrastructure sector of Afghanistan, giving a special attention to the construction of roads and railways.
Transport is vital to the well-functioning of economic activities and a key to ensuring social well-being and cohesion of populations. Transport ensures everyday mobility of people and is crucial to the production and distribution of goods.
The Transport Sector Master Plan Update sets out an ambitious 20-year strategy for Afghanistan’s entire transport sector to improve roads, railways, civil aviation, urban transport, trade logistics, and all institutions concerned with transport infrastructure and operations. The plan is an update of the Asian Development Bank (ADB)-supported Road Sector Master Plan, which helped guide the completion of up to 80% of Afghanistan’s priority road projects from 2006 to 2016. The updated Plan recommends several urgently needed actions to help Afghanistan deliver on its wider development goals.
