Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar Akhund, Afghanistan's Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs, conducted an official visit to Chabahar Port in Iran on November 9th. During his visit, he met with Chabahar Port officials and emphasized the need to enhance Afghanistan's exports and imports through the port. The Deputy PM requested that Iran facilitate easier access to Chabahar Port, enabling Afghanistan to reach global markets more effectively. The Iranian side assured Mullah Baradar Akhund of their commitment to providing the necessary facilities for Afghanistan at Chabahar Port and expressed their intent to boost Afghanistan's trade through the port. They also highlighted the collaboration of technical teams from both countries. Connecting to Chabahar Port will grant Afghanistan access to markets in Europe, the Middle East, India, and China, thereby strengthening Afghanistan's global relationships. This port holds significant economic importance for Central Asian countries, particularly landlocked Afghanistan. Chabahar Port offers a more efficient route, being tens of kilometers closer than Bandar Abbas and hundreds of kilometers shorter than Karachi Port, resulting in unprecedented reductions in export costs and transit times. Situated strategically, Chabahar Port enables Afghanistan to establish new trade and transit partnerships while connecting to international markets with lower time and cost.
