At the 24th meeting of the Economic Commission, chaired by Deputy PM for Economic Affairs, Mullah Abdul Ghani Beradar Akhund, various economic issues were discussed in detail and necessary decisions were taken.

After a thorough evaluation by the Economic Commission, the procedure formulated by the Ministry of Finance for the temporary export of gold was approved and declared applicable. The procedure is set out in 15 articles and covers all the important issues required for the temporary export of gold.

According to the procedure, every legal gold seller who has an official license can transport 10 kg of gold abroad for repair or processing in a month and is obliged to bring it back to the country within 3 months.

The Economic Commission also decided that the cost of governmental and private buildings connected to the Macroryan sewerage system and those to be connected in the future should be calculated from the date of connection.

According to an earlier decision by the Economic Commission, the state-owned Macroryan Maintenance Company, which was previously charging 10 Afghanis per square meter for its sewerage system, now charges 6 Afghanis.
