The EastWest Institute convened “Afghanistan Reconnected: Unlocking Investment Potential in the Region,” an Abu Dhabi Process consultation on Afghanistan’s investment potentials, in New Delhi at the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry’s (FICCI) Federation House, on November 19-20, 2013. The consultation addressed key challenges and opportunities for investment in Afghanistan after the 2014 withdrawal of international forces. Government officials, Members of Parliament and representatives of the business sector from Afghanistan, the region, Europe and the U.S., as well as experts from regional and international organizations attended.

The initiative of integrating parliamentarians into the Abu Dhabi Process consultation series is funded through the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs as a means to enrich the debate and to offer Members of Parliament the opportunity to partake in informal consultations on issues in the public interest and in consultations regarding large-scale economic development.
