Italy will spend $300 mil­lion on de­vel­op­ment projects dur­ing the year in Afghanistan’s Herat prov­ince. Ac­cord­ing to of­fi­cials, the money will be spent on big and small de­vel­op­ment projects, in­clud­ing the 160 kilo­me­ters road and ex­pan­sion of the Herat air­port. Con­struc­tion of the Herat-Cashti Sharif road would fa­cil­i­tate sup­plies of es­sen­tial ma­te­ri­als to the Salma power dam. Italy will also do­nate heavy ma­chines to the Afghan govern­ment for bet­ter ex­trac­tion of mar­ble.
