US Watchdog Finds Less Progress in Afghan Carpet Project

The US Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) in a new report released on August 4 has found that a $9.4 million project to improve the carpet industry in the country has met progress towards self-sufficiency, but its critical targets on sales, revenue and job creation have not been met. The program was initiated by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in June 2018 to establish the Kabul Carpet Export Center to develop self-sufficient company, create thousands of jobs and a true “Made in Afghanistan” product, according to SIGAR report.
