The Sixth Regional Economic Cooperation Conference on Afghanistan
“The Silk Road through Afghanistan”
3-4 September 2015
“We want to revitalize the Silk Road and turn Afghanistan to a regional hub for connecting Central
Asia to South Asia.”
H.E. President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani
2014 represented a watershed year for Afghanistan. From presidential elections to the completion of the country’s security transition and establishment of the National Unity Government, the political and security transition processes have been concluded. A successful economic transition remains the third critical pillar for ensuring that the significant gains achieved since 2001 are irreversible. Situated at the crossroads of Eurasia, Afghanistan can now access some of the world’s fastest growing markets, as well as serve as a transit hub for expanding trade between Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Besides raising living standards and spreading ideas and culture, increased economic connectivity through Afghanistan builds confidence and trust across the region, defending against the spread of extremism, narcotics, poverty, and hopelessness.
