March 16, 2022
The Economic Commission, chaired by First Deputy Prime Minister, Mullah Abdul Ghani Beradar Akhund, discussed various issues in detail. The First Deputy Prime Minister directed Da Afghanistan Bank to send an urgent letter to all commercial banks and money changers to stop the exchange of stamped dollars, dollars with writing on them and the previously printed series of dollars at low prices.
National businessmen and ordinary Afghans complain that the commercial banks and money exchangers are buying such dollars at low prices from them which has caused them problems.
The First Deputy Prime Minister also had instructions to Da Afghanistan Bank about the exchange of old Afghani notes, so the commercial banks and money exchangers could purchase old Afghani banknotes from the public, which are valid for the Da Afghanistan Bank.
The Economic Commission also appointed a special committee to set up a systematic mechanism for the return of houses and buildings built illegally on government lands, and submit them to the Commission for evaluation.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is taking this step at a time when houses and tall buildings have been built on many government lands by former powerholders, members of parliament, and some ordinary people.
A special committee was also appointed to formulate a scheme for monitoring and evaluating the implementation of development projects by foreign organizations in Afghanistan and to submit the report to the Commission for evaluation. Foreign organizations, which have been operating in Afghanistan for decades in various fields, have not been monitored by any government body since the re-establishment of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.
The Economic Commission headed by Mullah Abdul Ghani Beradar Akhund also discussed the issue of a contract for a piece of land belonging to the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology which is located nearby Sarai Shahzada in Kabul. After detailed discussions, it was decided that the right to contract the land, which was originally owned by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, would become the Ministry's right; It worth mentioning that the issue was referred to the Cabinet for a final decision.
