Afghanistan uses up a central significance in South Asia owing to it is geo-strategic area and normal resources-but is known as as one among the poorest countries in the world. Being a small , area locked and poor region with around 85 percent of it is population depending on agriculture, as well as its socio-economic structure being motivated in every respect by exterior forces for more than twenty years, Afghanistan really has to have a proper insurance plan framework- with, the government bodies in Afghanistan accountable towards the common people, intended for the procedures and their execution, more so when the government has no clear mandate from the the general public.
Cultivation contributes about 53 percent of the country's annual GDP. Around twenty eight percent with the country's GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT comes from light industry, 8 percent in the trade (of which about 87 percent is unaccounted re-exports) and around 6th percent through the construction.

After that there has been significant flow of funds in the form of foreign help. However , the process of reconstruction has become slow.
