Afghanistan Independent Land Authority on Monday signed a contract with the carpet weavers union which will help establish the first carpet manufacturing townships for carpet weavers.
The industrial-residential townships will be built over 3,500 acres of land in Nangarhar, Kunduz and Balkh provinces.
According to President Ashraf Ghani’s office, the establishment of the township and industrial parks will help the country attract investment.
The land authority officials have said that it has allocated nearly 9,000 acres of land for carpet townships and industrial parks across the country.
In the first phase of the program, 1,500 acres of land will be provided in Nangarhar, 1,000 acres of land in Kunduz and another 1,000 acres of land in Balkh.
