Afghanistan looks to open air corridors to Singapore and Indonesia


In the wake of launching the Afghanistan-Kazakhstan air cargo corridor, Afghanistan expects to open similar trade routes and conditions with Singapore and Indonesia.
The Office of the Senior Advisor to the President in Banking and Finance said that from now on Afghanistan is expected to export 10 tons of goods to Kazakhstan's capital Almaty per week after experiencing teething problems, reported Kabul's TOLOnews 24/7 news channel.
Afghanistan has also accelerated efforts to open similar corridors with Singapore and Indonesia, according to public relations officer Sameer Rasa.
"We are trying to work on other corridors in other countries in the world alongside this corridor and this has got significance for our exports," said Mr Rasa.
Alongside fresh and dried fruits and handicrafts, Afghan carpets will also be exported to Kazakhstan markets via air cargo, according to Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce and Industries (ACCI).
"It is hoped that Kabul-Dubai and Kabul-Jakarta corridors become operational too, we hope that our exports to other countries in the world increase significantly in the next few years," said head of ACCI Mir Zaman Popal.
In June last year President Ashraf Ghani inaugurated the first Afghanistan-India air corridor during a ceremony at the Hamid Karzai International Airport (HKIR) - a direct route that bypasses Pakistan and is meant to improve commerce and economic activities between the two nations.
Two months ago the Afghan government announced that since the launch of the air cargo corridor between Afghanistan and New Delhi six months ago fresh produce, dried fruit and medicinal plants valued at US$20 million have been exported to India.
