Afghanistan - Country snapshot (English)

The withdrawal of international security forces since 2014 and continuing political uncertainties have resulted in significant deceleration of economic growth, with fiscal pressures increasing as security threats mount. However, to a significant extent Afghanistan has successfully managed the immediate challenges resulting from the transition. It has maintained macroeconomic stability and established the conditions for a slow economic recovery. Risks to the economy remain significant, and it is vital that the government identify new sources of growth to replace the declining donor inflows over the longer-term. This book covers the recent sector wise developments of Afghanistan supported by World Bank Group for the year 2016.
