NUG’s commitments for implementation of infrastructural projects

Decades of war, a harsh climate, and neglect left much of Afghanistan’s infrastructure in rubble, hobbling efforts to rebuild. Without electricity, businesses could not operate machinery. Households had no running water for drinking, cooking and cleaning, and absence of clean drinking water posed a major public-health challenge. Underdeveloped roads hampered movement of goods to domestic and international markets, and isolated villages from basic government services. Scarcity of classrooms and medical clinics restricted access to education and basic healthcare.
ButAfghanistan has come a long over the past seventeen years. Much has been accomplished since then in the areas of reconstruction, state-building, poverty alleviation and relief and assistance delivery to impoverished masses with the help of the International community.
Meanwhile since its inauguration in 2014, the National Unity Government initiated a number of projects to help develop the country’s infrastructures in the areas of energy, water, social affairs and economic as a whole.
The National Unity Government (NUG) also established different high councils and commissions to beef up economic development processes and help the country reach self-sufficiency in economic spheres.The National Procurement Commission and the High Economic Council are too working hard to finalize the works of the projects and put them for bidding process as well as to select the qualified institutions for running of the projects.
Meanwhile the leaders of National Unity Government have time and again visited provinces of the country to inaugurate and closely monitor the implementation of the projects and to listen to people’s demand and problems.
Recently, President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani has inaugurated work on three power projects in central Bamyan province. The projects included construction of 220/20kv substation, 220kv electricity transmission line from Doshi to Bamayn and establishment of electricity supply network for 20,000 houses. The projects worth $80 million, were contracted with three companies—two Indian and one Chinese.
In his earlier trip to Daikundi Province, The president said 70 kilometers road was being asphalted in the province and order the Public Works minister to accelerate the survey of north-south corridor and allow funds for the construction of airport in Daikundi.
Last week, President Ghani promised construction of an administrative complex worth 1.3 billion afghanis during his visit of Paktika province.
Infrastructure is one of the crucial areas in the present state of affairs in the country. Lack of sufficient infrastructure in the form of roads, bridges, tunnels, power generation facilities and transmission grids, hospitals, sufficient urban housing, sewerage and solid waste management systems, railways and water supply systems in both rural and urban sectors have significantly slowed down and hampered the process of economic development and has led to denial of income and means of livelihood to our impoverished people.
Therefore, the government of Afghanistan working hard to ease the people with essential facilities. They have not only initiated a number of mega projects to bring about a safe and sound environment for the people, but also paved the way for recruitment of young cadres in different government positions, aiming to end bureaucratic systems and to speed up reconstruction and development of Afghanistan.
