For the first time in its existence, the Afghanistan Investment Support Agency (AISA) is publishing an Investor Directory of its registered companies. The main purpose of this directory is to market the businesses within Afghanistan and abroad as well as ease communication between the companies, customers and other interested parties. This directory provides a listing of approximately 3000 companies currently active in Afghanistan and contains the basic contact information of foreign and local companies. The companies are categorized into sectors and broken down alphabetically by company name. Foreign clients who are interested in engaging into partnerships with local entities are now able to find and contact the respective local companies.
