Sounding the Bell: Opening the Market to Private Sector Investment in Afghanistan and Pakistan

As international aid decreases, Afghanistan and Pakistan will be forced to increasingly rely on foreign investment and a growing domestic private sector. In particular, the future of Afghanistan and Pakistan will hinge on Afghanistan's ability to attract investment in support of its burgeoning telecommunications sector and Pakistan's ability to provide the electricity needed to fuel the rise of new businesses and industries. The Office of Afghanistan and Pakistan Affairs (USAID) , the Carey Business School and the School of Advanced International Studies has organized a public forum to jointly discuss this topic by convening a panel comprised of government leadership from both countries and subject matter experts on the private sector in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
