Exhibition titled “Akhtar Bazzar” held in Kabul

An exhibition titled “Akhtar Bazar” was held in Kabul by the Ministry of Economy to support handicrafts and domestic products. Abdul Latif Nazari, the deputy minister of economy, stated that holding such exhibitions contribute to the growth of the country’s economy, requesting the citizens to purchase thier domestic products. “The macro policy of the government is to support the domestic products, and such exhibition can create a culture for using domestic products in the society,” Nazari said. Meanwhile, the acting head of the Afghanistan Chamber of Industry and Mines (ACIM), Abdul Mohib Hashimi, stated the participants showcased their handmade products in over 180 stalls in this exhibition, of which 60 stalls were dedicated to female participants. “The factories willing to hold exhibitions for domestic products should be aligned with standards and be allowed based on standards,” he said. Handicrafts, art pieces, and agricultural products are among the most significant items showcased in the exhibition. In addition, several participants in the exhibition expressed dissatisfaction with the lack of a market for their products and are asking the IEA to create opportunities for them to participate in international exhibitions. “We want to introduce our handicrafts to other nations by participating in the international exhibitions,” said Fatima Osmani, a participant. The “Akhtar Bazar” exhibition will last four days, in which the participants from 34 provinces showcase their handicrafts and products. Handicrafts of Afghan women are a collection of arts and crafts, including needlework, weaves, ornaments, leatherwork, and local clothes. These handmade creations have not had a suitable market in recent years and are facing stagnation. It comes as several industrialist women ask the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan to create industrial parks so that they can increase their production. Saida Ahmadi
