Khost an emerging commercial hub: Farahi

KABUL (PAN): Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG) Abdul Khaliq Farahi on Saturday called southeastern Khost province an emerging commercial hub of Afghanistan.
Addressing a daylong conference in Kabul, he said Khost was ranked a 3rd grade province, but it had the status of a 1st grade province, given its revenue-generating potential.
Minister of Rural Rehabilitation and Development Wais Ahmad Barmak, Minister of Agriculture Mohammad Asif Rahimi, several deputy ministers and public representatives from the province attended Khost Development Conference.
A statement from IDLG said the event enabled participants to discuss the challenges facing Khost with officials from relevant ministries and organisations.
