According to a joint survey by the ministry of economic and the World Bank over 36% of the people of Afghanistan live under the poverty line.

Afghan economic analysts say that the government must start investment in infrastructure projects to solve these challenges.

They warned that if the government does not take serious measures, the people will cause the fall of the system.

“The current poverty in Afghanistan is very dangerous, the government should make serious efforts to solve the problem,” Taj Muhammad Talash, economic analyst said.

Some are said to believe that if the government and donor countries have invested in infrastructure projects in the past 14 years, the country would not have this problem.

“This is a disappointing figure; a large number of Afghans are under poverty line. The government must have tried to solve this problem in the past,” Ali Shamim, Teacher of University said.

Afghanistan is one of the most impoverished nations in Asia. With 36% of its population living below the poverty line, Afghanistan is only second to Bangladesh as Asia’s poorest country.
