Afghanistan Economy

Back to Economic Data Main Page

Afghanistan is a country located in the South Asian(Middle Eastern) region of the world. Despite having an average annual GDP growth of around 10% per year over the last ten years, Afghanistan has one of the lowest GDP per capita, at around $900. The economic engines of Afghanistan are the transportation industry(fueled by the country's fifty three airports) and the agricultural industry(pomegranates, grapes, apricots, and various other forms of produce). Significantly, a sizable, growing portion of the country's total revenue comes from expatriates from outside the country giving aid, as well as relief from international organizations.
