The Ministry of Public Works has announced that more than 125,000 tons of transfers have been made via railway lines in the past two weeks.

National Radio and Television, quoting this department today, Thursday, 6th, Jawza, reported that the Ministry of Public Works stated that 125,290 metric tons of goods had been transferred through the country’s railway lines in the past two weeks.

According to this ministry, these transfers have been made through the railway lines of Hairatan, Aqina, and Torghundi.

The Islamic Emirate Railway Administration has announced that it is providing suitable conditions and better facilities for traders.

In addition to the domestic railway developments, Afghanistan is also involved in several significant transnational projects aimed at boosting regional cooperation and economic growth.

One such project is the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline. TAPI is expected to transport natural gas from Turkmenistan through Afghanistan and Pakistan to India, enhancing energy security and fostering economic collaboration among the participating countries.

Another important project is the Central Asia-South Asia power project, commonly known as CASA-1000.

This initiative aims to transport surplus hydroelectric power from Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan to Afghanistan and Pakistan. CASA-1000 is crucial for addressing energy shortages in the recipient countries and strengthening regional energy integration.

Additionally, the Lapis Lazuli Corridor is a key regional connectivity project involving Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Turkey.

This corridor aims to facilitate trade by providing a new transit route linking Central Asia with Europe. The project is expected to enhance trade and economic cooperation, contributing to the overall stability and development of the region.

However, the current security situation under the Taliban regime is concerning. Stability is crucial for the successful implementation of projects, and the prevailing instability poses significant challenges to the progress and execution of such initiatives.
