Officials from the economic department in Jawzjan province of Afghanistan have announced the opening of an exhibition of agricultural products and handicrafts aimed at strengthening the economy of families in the province.

The exhibition was announced by the provincial officials of the Jawzjan province through the social media platform X on Thursday, March 17.

According to the head of the Department of Economy of the Acting Government, about 5,000 women are working in various fields in the province.

Reports indicate that interest among women in Jawzjan Province has increased, and many of them are striving to create job opportunities for other women.

Previously, media outlets related to the Acting Government had reported that currently 4,500 women are engaged in 18 industrial sectors in the province.

According to the head of Industry and Trade in Jawzjan Province, Mrs. Sangi Mah, a 50-year-old woman, has facilitated job opportunities for 170 other women by establishing a wool-weaving workshop in the province to support women.

Meanwhile, Nooruddin Azizi, the Acting Minister of Industry and Trade of the Taliban, emphasized the enhancement of women’s capacity in the trade sector during his trip to the Turkmen-Afghan business networking conference in Ashgabat.

He traveled to Ashgabat on Friday, March 1st, with 15 businesswomen for the opening of the Turkmen-Afghan business networking conference.

It is worth mentioning that several exhibitions have been organized for businesswomen in Kabul and several provinces of the country to enhance women’s economic capacity.

Since the Taliban’s takeover in Afghanistan, they have implemented suppressive policies that severely limit women’s rights, including their access to education and employment. These actions have been vehemently criticized by both the international community and the Afghan populace.

In the aftermath, Afghanistan has been plunged into a severe humanitarian crisis. The situation has been exacerbated by the harsh winter conditions, compounding the hardships faced by the population.

Adding to the crisis, Afghan refugees returning from neighbouring countries are confronted with a dire lack of basic necessities. This includes limited access to medical care, food, shelter, and job opportunities, further worsening their plight.
