“The economic growth should be more than 4% to meet the country’s economy needs. The government is responsible for ensuring a balanced and stable economic growth. The economic growth rate must be increased, maintained and managed,” said CSO’s deputy head Haseeb Moahid. According to (Wadsam).
Meanwhile, the Afghan Ministry of Economy argues that the growth in the economy is higher than that of the population.
