Promise Background
To promote the Afghan produced goods, President Ghani committed to eliminating taxes on Afghan exports during his 5 year term: “It is with increase in exports that we can talk about increase in national productions. For this reason, for the five coming years there will be no tax on exports and all the problems that our exporters face will be fundamentally removed so that in this manner, domestic production is encouraged and conditions are created for job finding which is the key goal of our governance. The more we create favorable conditions the more, over time, the balance between imports and exports will be shifted positively and durably towards exports.” (Change and Continuity: A Manifesto)

Indicators to Measure Progress
  • 1. Legislation and policies developed on eliminating taxes on Afghan exports
