Podcast #13: Will the Belt and Road Become Afghanistan’s Road to Peace and Development?

In this new podcast of the the Belt and Road Institute in Sweden (BRIX) 2021 series, we explore the situation in Afghanistan in the past and present, what went wrong and how the situation could improve to prevent Afghanistan from sliding into new conflicts and wars.

Hussein Askary, board member of the BRIX and Shakeel Ahmad Ramay, founder and CEO of the Asian Institute of Eco-Civilization Research and Development (AIERD) in Islamabad, Pakistan, discuss the lessons learned from the past 20 years of U.S. and NATO operations in Afghanistan, and the implications of intergrating the country into the Belt and Road Initiative for stability, reconstruction, and economic and social development in Afghanistan.
