Likewise, Shirali Tazri welcomed the meeting and called it a good omen for development of business between the two countries and that Afghanistan is hoped to reach highly developed economic level in the future. “Afghanistan, during the war years, didn’t enjoy good product condition to beef up its domestic products, so, it forced to import its domestic needs from the neighboring countries,” said Tazri.
