For Afghanistan’s economic revival, focus on macroeconomic stability, financial flows, and economic governance
By Paul Fishstein and Murtaza E. Amiryar
The Biden administration’s General License, announced in February 2022 and exempting international commercial transactions from US sanctions, is a step in the right direction, but its effects will prove limited.
The participants of the Atlantic Council / Rockefeller Brothers Fund Strategic Dialogues have been working for the past eight months to develop a long-term strategic outlook to promote stability in Afghanistan consistent with Afghan, US, and European interests and values. This group of distinguished European, American, and Afghan diplomats, military officers, scholars, and analysts brought to our deliberations a deep understanding of the context both on the ground and among the allies.
