Afghanistan: Challenges of Rebuilding a War Torn Infrastructure with Afaghanistan's Ambassador to the United States Said Tayeb Jawad.
Today, Afghanistan is on a long and difficult road to recovery. Despite the significant economic improvement since the fall of the Taliban regime in 2001, the environment remains in a state of crisis. Much of the population continues to suffer from shortages of basic necessities, while criminality, insecurity, and the government's inability to extend rule of law to its country poses challenges to future economic growth. Afghanistan will continue to be highly dependent on international assistance as it strives to meet the long-term challenges of economic stability, corruption, government capacity, and rebuilding a war torn infrastructure- World Affairs Council of Washington, DC
