    Abdali, along with the representatives of 50 Afghan export firms, arrived in New Delhi for the two-day 'Made in Afghanistan, Nature's Best' meet in a bid to strengthen trade relations between the two nations.

    Speaking to ANI, Abdali said, "It (Indo-Afghan trade) is on a high trajectory. The level of trade has increased to almost US$ 900 million between India and Afghanistan. Our target for trade by 2020 is US$ 2 billion and we are heading towards that target."

    He stated that Afghanistan was heading towards a better position as long as connectivity was concerned and that it was no longer a land-locked country. He also said that the opening of the Chahbahar Port by 2022 will further help trade grow.

    It would be excellent if they could just get back to business.
