In Kabul, AACC introduced the upcoming 10th Anniversary Matchmaking Conference activities to leaders in the Afghan business, government and international financial communities where key past participants and speakers conveyed their Matchmaking Conference experiences with building business relationships between Afghan and U.S. companies, including significant partnerships, joint ventures, sales and information exchange. Central Bank Governor, H. E. Noor Delawari, a Keynote Speaker at previous Matchmaking Conferences, talked about the importance of using the Washington event to develop relationships between Afghan and U.S. U.S. bankers. Visa application procedures were also discussed and AACC plus its Afghan sister Chambers and organizations conveyed their application processes. In spite of what is a tight window of time, meetings were held with consular officials and we are expecting a robust delegation of Afghan businesspeople attendees.
