Opening the one-day workshop, HE Mohammed Saif Al Suwaidi, director general of ADFD delivered the welcome speech and added that such support will enable the people of Afghanistan to achieve economic and social development across all sectors.

He said: “ADFD works closely with the Government of Afghanistan to support various economic and social development projects that contribute to the country’s sustainable growth.”

Since it started its support for development projects in Afghanistan in 1977, ADFD has allocated $327m (AED1.2bn) towards the development of 14 projects that contributed to the economic and social development of the country.

Dr. Mohammed Qayoumi, chief advisor to the President of Afghanistan, noted that ADFD was one of the first aid agencies to support development projects in Afghanistan that improved the living standards of its citizens.

The Fund has emerged as a top international aid agency due to its active role in providing the much-needed support for developing countries to achieve sustainable development.

Alongside ADFD senior staff, the workshop included representatives from the Afghan government, Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development, the Saudi Fund for Development, the Islamic Development Bank, as well as the OPEC Fund for International Development.
