Mazar-e-Sharif, Afghanistan – The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) sponsored an exhibition of Afghan products on October 18, 2016 to facilitate sales and acquaint the manufacturing companies with products and services available in the city. An estimated 100 business representatives and local government officials attended the exhibition.

Participants included representatives from the Provincial Governor’s Office, departments of Economy, Women’s Affairs, and Commerce and Industries, the Chamber of Commerce and Industries, the Industrialists Union, the Afghanistan Investment Support Agency (AISA), and small and medium enterprises. The expo was an opportunity for Afghan manufacturing companies to exhibit their products, learn about one another and network with government offices that work with the manufacturing sector. The USAID Assistance in Building Afghanistan by Developing Enterprises (ABADE) organized the expo, in part, because local businesses were reaching out to other provinces or even abroad to obtain products or services that actually were available in Mazar-e-Sharif.
