Aga Khan Calls for Private Sector Role in Afghanistan

The Aga Khan said the lack of co-ordination and fragmentation of development efforts has been a barrier to progress in Afghanistan. He cited illegal drug production as one example. -- "The most profound example is the fact that much of this country's economic life - activities related to illicit drug production - falls outside the reach of any legitimate regime. In many developing countries, illicit activities have shrunk as legal authority extends its influence and as alternative licit activities - in the realm of agriculture for example - take on added value," he said.
