Greetings AACC members, colleagues and friends: We have some exciting and fast-breaking news to share with everyone. Over the last week the AACC has held high-level U.S. Government
meetings and strategic discussions. These discussions have focused on what we believe are a number of strategic opportunities presented by the U.S. President’s recent decision on a “New
Afghanistan Strategy” and the surge of U.S. Special Forces into Afghanistan to help combat terrorism and return key regions of the nation to Afghanistan Government control. Over the next
12-18 months, U.S. forces working in close partnership with Afghanistan and other Allied forces will create the momentum and stability needed to finally launch an aggressive private sector-led,
private sector-focused development plan for Afghanistan.
