Cargo Route Failure Draws Backlash From Business Community
 Cargo Route Failure Draws Backlash From Business Community

President Ashraf Ghani's vision of cargo route between Afghanistan and India has failed, the Fresh Fruit Sellers' Union said on Tuesday.

Exporters and have said that the Afghan businessmen have suffered millions of Afs losses due to the ineffectiveness of the air cargo route with India.

"I am thankful to Dr. Qayoumi and Ajmal Ahmadi. Whenever I have a vision out of the books, I consulted with minister of the economy and the minister of finance. We reached consensus that it should become infrastructure," said Ghani.

According to ACCI, one of the terms of the air cargo agreement has been deleted following the first flight to India.

The Fresh Fruit Sellers' Union have said that more than 1000 tons of fruits were expected to be exported to India. To date only 100 tons have been exported while another 12 tons have rotted at the airport.

The business community has said that president Ghani's advisor, Ariana Airlines and ACCI were responsible of the failure.

"We lost approximately six or seven million Afs and they should compensate us," said local businessman Atta Mohammad Mohammadi.

"Evidence shows that Ariana has got the contract and Ariana Airline is responsible," said Nejat Haidari, head of the Fresh Fruit Sellers' Union.

In terms of the agreement between Ariana Airlines and ACCI, if the exporters failed to prepare the fruit packs on time, they have to pay the money to the airlines. Also, if Ariana Airlines fails to transfer the fruit to the targeted destination in India, then Ariana has to compensate the business community and exporters.

The ACCI claims that Ariana Airlines has omitted this article from the agreement.

"Ariana denied this article just after the first flight and said that the airline will not commit to this because the agreement, which had been signed with the foreign companies, was not credible," said Khan Jan Alokozai, deputy head of ACCI.

"They failed to deliver on their commitments and promises," said local businessman Mohammad Osman.

The ministry of commerce has also stressed obligation for the compensation of the exporters.

"We do not want our businessmen to suffer loses," said Musafir Qoqandi, spokesman to ministry of commerce.

So far only four flights have been conducted.

Ariana Airlines and office of Ghani's economic advisor have not commented on the issue. However, the ministry of commerce has said that an agreement is expected to be signed with Kam Air regarding the transfer of fruits to India.
