The Afghan Ambassador to the United States, H.E. Hamdullah Mohib, and Institute for Education‘s Founder and CEO, Coach Kathy Kemper hosted a Media and Technology Roundtable at the Embassy of Afghanistan in Washington D.C. with honored guest and Lexington Columnist at The Economist, James Astill.
Many distinguished guests, including former US Ambassador to the United States Ron Neumann, were present to discuss America and Afghanistan at a crossroads, and the economic, political, and security situation in Afghanistan.
Ambassador Mohib told guests, “Afghanistan has come a long way – things have changed from an institutional perspective within the government.” He continued, “Today, Afghanistan graduates 300,000 people annually from institutions of higher education.”
On the security situation in the country, Ambassador Mohib said, “The Afghan military is getting stronger each day – soldiers can launch operations independently. The Taliban can no longer gather in large numbers because they will be targeted. They are under a lot of pressure.”
