About the Conference:

The Afghanistan Energy Business Opportunities Conference in Dubai provided interested investors with a comprehensive outline of potential investment opportunities in Afghanistan’s energy sector. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), working together with the Afghan Ministry of Energy and Water, used the momentum generated by the Kandahar Solar Project to explore the best approach to attract investors and policymakers to partner in Afghanistan’s emerging energy sector. As a result of this conference, the Afghan government hopes to bolster domestic energy production through competitive and transparent private sector investment.
