Navigating Afghanistan’s Economic Transition

January 31, 2013, 12:00pm ET - 1:30pm ET

As the United States and its allies reduce their military presence and financial flows to Afghanistan between now and 2014 and beyond, please join the Center for American Progress for a discussion on the economic aspects of the transition process featuring a panel of distinguished experts. Our panel will discuss Afghanistan’s economic challenges and potential opportunities for growth, as well as how the international community can assist Afghan leaders in reducing financial dependencies and bolstering Afghanistan’s economy. Moreover, they will discuss the linkages between Afghanistan’s economic realities and its politics, analyzing the impact of international aid on Afghanistan’s political system and how the reduction of international resources will impact stability.
