Looking around, they see that the best and only way to achieve that is to become a significant link in the Chinese Governments largest investment project over the next 20 years, the New Silk Road.
The employment opportunities in particular that that infrastructure investment, plus potential mining, will bring, as well as ongoing work and revenue have the capability of lifting the country out of its current peasant status.
It will take time but once the $ tap, that the US used very successfully in its divide and rule strategy, gets turned off we should see a more coordinated Taliban Government come into being. They did it before, without these huge Chinese related opportunities, there should be little doubt that they will achieve it again.
Do you think the Chinese will bring in Chinese workers to work on the projects?
