The women are back at work

Today, a plane with goods from Afghanistan lands at Copenhagen Airport. It has been a troublesome trip by truck from Kabul to Tashkent, but it succeeded! It is the first of two large consignments. We now have mulberries, Shakurbai almonds, walnuts and many other unique Afghan quality products.

Last week we together with Dansk Industri held the first Afghanistan private sector event ever. There was good news from the three companies we are dealing with. The women are back at work. The buyers are in the process of buying in from farmers in all of Afghanistan. Employees are busy cleaning, sorting and packing. There are major administrative and logistical challenges, but all companies talk about less corruption and much better security.

The three companies we deal with, Ziba Foods, Shadian and Afghanistan Saffron Company together create income and work for several thousand people in Afghanistan.

Thank you for dealing for peace.

Yours sincerely
