Presidential Candidate, Abdullah Abdullah Explains Economic Platform

Presidential Candidate Abdullah Abdullah on Monday announced his economic policy and pointed out a number of crucial issues including expansion of industrial townships in provinces, foreign investment attraction and the process of changing the country from a consumption economy to a production economy.

While discussing the issue of national economic development, Abdullah said that his government will focus on issues such as establishment of railway to connect southern and northern regions of the country, rehabilitation of basic infrastructures, development of the livestock sector and promotion of self-reliance in the agriculture sector.

"Our economic policy is to change the country from a consumption economy to a production economy," Abdullah said. "This includes agricultural growth, mines extractions and construction and other sectors that have the potential to boost the nation's incomes."

Mr. Abdullah strongly rejected the allegations of some other candidates who had claimed that Abdullah intends to legalize the poppy cultivation.

Meanwhile, a number of residents in Helmand and Nangarhar provinces announced their supports for Abdullah.
