The Government of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan faces an urgent need to generate sustainable sources of revenue. While several very large and potentially valuable mineral deposits have been identified in Afghanistan, GIRoA now realizes that such projects will take ten years or longer to start generating significant revenue.
