Employees of the biggest obstacle for foreign investors in Afghanistan are on strike because of salary suspension

About one hundred employees of the Afghanistan Investment Support Agency (AISA) are on strike because of their salaries suspension.
The process of AISA merger into the Ministry of Commerce and Industries (MoCI) has led to suspension of their salaries. AISA employees accused the ministry of leaving them out of the National Technical Assistance (NTA) system, which is a new salary scale process based on which employees are given standard salaries. They also complain that the ministry had cut lunch and transport facilities of AISA employees.

AISA has always been one of the most corrupt Afghan institutions as well as being the biggest obstacle for both foreign and local investors.
Fortunately, thanks to an Order of the President of Afghanistan Dr. Ashraf Ghani issued on April 2016, began the merger process of AISA into MoCI, giving so new hope to all foreign and local investors who began to flee from Afghanistan precisely because of the extravagant and stressful AISA bureaucracy in issuing business licenses.
