About Us

Private Sector Development is one of the top priorities of the National Unity Government (NUG) and an overarching goal of Afghanistan National Peace and Development Framework (ANPDF). To realize and approach the issue in a regular and structured manner, an inter-ministerial coordination body was established and tasked with formulating policies and coordinating between the private sector, donor agencies and the government of Afghanistan on implementation of urgent reforms to improve the private sector environment in Afghanistan.

Established and launched on April 6th 2016, the Executive Committee on Private Sector Development (PriSEC) was placed under the Economic Committee of the Council of Ministers, overseen and managed by the Office of His Excellency the Chief Executive.

Due to the cross-cutting nature of PriSEC work and to build on the reform momentum created, the NUG decided to further articulate the role of PriSEC by developing a National Priority Program for Private Sector Development (PSD NPP) which mandates PriSEC to implement reforms across 4 major pillars (strategic priorities) and contribute to the implementation of other relevant NPPs, strategies and policies over the next 5 years (2018-2023).
