Chinese entrepreneurs chasing the Afghan ‘gold rush’ | business and economy

From: 101 East

101 East examines the rise of Chinese investors in Afghanistan in the wake of the Taliban takeover.

When the Taliban returned to power in August 2021, most foreign and multinational companies had already packed up and left Afghanistan.

Going against the stream of foreigners fleeing the country was one group looking for “once in a lifetime” opportunities: Chinese entrepreneurs.

Despite ongoing unrest, an economic crisis and UN concerns over human rights, more Chinese citizens are joining the country’s “gold rush”. Once a small minority, Chinese nationals now make up the largest group of migrants to Afghanistan.

With exclusive access to leading Chinese investors, 101 East examines their growing influence in Afghanistan’s business and media sectors.
