The council of ministers of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has said that they will sooner begin issuance of the National IDs and passport in the country.

In a meeting of the council that was conducted on Monday, October 4 the leadership of the IEA directed the ministry of interior affairs to begin the issuance of NIDs and Passport.

Officials have not disclosed the exact date of the start of the process.

It comes as tens of thousands of people are waiting to get their passports and NIDs but the issuance of both has been stopped since the Taliban took over the country on August 15.

    It is important that schools have laptops and keyboards or even just tablets and that people learn how to touch-type so they can easily use technology.

    Regional areas need electricity and internet access. Get China to help with efficient infrastructure planning so that schools have electricity and internet access and China can dig out and ship out the resources they want to buy.

    In China they use a digital currency that is easy to use on mobile phones (which can be charged using solar powered chargers) and this can be done to transfer money between people within a country and a persons bank account in one country to another without using US controlled SWIFT.

    Swop deals are the easiest to get done – China could buy some resources and in return build infrastructure which should employ Afghans.

    If I was the Taliban Government I would organise for some cultural events to be held in Kabul – could be art, music, food etc. and broadcast the event to the world to show how normal the country is.

    Any images not currently acceptable in the country could just be painted over with white paint or you could buy a wide format printer and materials and have positive messages printed on various sized material and put up around the country.

    Tourism, surely there are some historical things in Afghanistan that foreigners would pay to look at. Maybe you could do what they do in New Zealand and have some activity based things young tourists can do. Some young people would find it exciting to visit Afghanistan.

    Pakistan, China and Iran have good English language media that does not criticize the Taliban and I would ensure that this can be accessed throughout Afghanistan.
