Afghan traders demand subsidized air corridor to export goods to Chinese markets – Times of India

KABUL: Demanding a subsidized air corridor for exporting goods to the Chinese markets, the Afghan traders mentioned that the air corridor can be too costly if the federal government did not implement a subsidy system.
“The world nations or so-known as donors stopped supporting the subsidy system. This brings an enormous change. Earlier, the expense for Afghan goods can be much less and the Afghan goods have been offered within the worldwide markets. We have been even in a position to compete with different nations,” mentioned Mahbobullah Mohammadi, a dealer, reported Tolo News.
Meanwhile, some Afghan traders in China mentioned that they have been anticipating extra goods to arrive from Afghanistan.
“The goods include carpets, raisins, and precious stones that will arrive in the China market,” mentioned Salman Reha, an Afghan dealer based mostly in China.
The chamber of commerce and funding mentioned that China pledged to facilitate exports of Afghan fresh fruit to its markets.
The performing head of the chamber, Mohammad Younus Momand, mentioned that Afghanistan exported solely pine nuts to China to date, reported Tolo News.
“1,000 tons of pine nuts were exported to China via air-corridor. 5,000 tons were exported by other routes. We are trying to increase the exports,” he mentioned.
The Afghanistan Civil Aviation Authority (ACAA) mentioned that cargo flights have been despatched to some nations.
“The cargo flights arrive from UAE and Abu Dhabi. The Ariana and Kam Air airlines conduct some cargo flights. The flights to China are also cargo flights that transfer pine nuts,” mentioned Ghulam Jailani Wafa, an official on the Afghanistan Civil Aviation Authority.
