With encouraging investments and help from various nations, Afghanistan is now on the path of reconstructing its economy. Countries like China are investing with open heart to help the war struck nation to build its infrastructure and forge its future. The contribution is significant from China as it is cooperating with Afghanistan in building roads, power lines, opening mines and also boosting its local small businesses.

Speaking of developments in the nation one cannot simply ignore the development of TAPI which seemed impossible a couple of years back. Now with peace eventually spreading across the nation, the gas pipeline project may turn into reality as well.

The Asian Development Bank financed, TAPI feasibility study in 2005 is in place. Additionally the intergovernmental agreements, framework pas-purchase contracts were signed during 2008-12 as well. Turkey is eager to supply gas to energy thirsty markets of India and Pakistan via the TAPI pipeline. The project once completed will help more than one nation and bring prominent energy security all over Asian countries.
