Asian Development Bank Gives Afghanistan Grant to Improve Roads

The Asian Development Bank has issued a $2.7-million grant to Afghanistan to improve the country's road system in rural areas.

The grant will go to training highway engineers at Kabul Polytechnic University as well as to the Ministry of Public Works.

The ADB said on Tuesday that the purpose of the grants is to help people in Afghanistan's backcountry gain better access to the center of the country.

The grants will be applied to a road master plan that was earlier developed with ADB assistance.
