A target of $2 billion trade with India by 2020
“The level of trade between India and Afghanistan has increased over $900 million and the goal is to improve it further. Our target towards trade with India is $2 billion by 2020 and we are heading towards that. This will be through the air corridor, road and other initiatives including Chabahar Port. We are looking for full operationalization of the four phases of the Chabahar
Port by 2020-22,” says Shaida Abdali, Afghanistan’s Ambassador to India. The air freight initiative between India and Afghanistan has given very positive results and so the service has been extended to touch Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Kazakhstan and Dubai.
