KABUL (Pajhwok): Construction work on the Nilabagh township has been launched at a cost of 71 million US dollars in Kabul.

A contract for the first phase was signed between the previous government and the Chinese firm MCC on September 19, 2020. However, work on the scheme was delayed.

The township is being constructed with financial support from a Chinese company, the Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs office said.

It added the scheme, including 1,400 residential apartments across 56 blocks, would take three years to complete.

Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar called the initiation of the project an important development in Afghanistan’s reconstruction.

He said: “The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) is committed to executing various development projects in the country.”

He said an enabling environment had been created for investment and all domestic and foreign capitalists could invest in agriculture, trade, power and construction projects.

The deputy premier asked the Ministry of Urban Development and Housing (MoUDH) and the Kabul Municipality to address construction problems in the capital and allow work to begin so that jobs were created for the people.
