The first cargo plane that took off from Kabul brought 60 tons of agricultural products from the country with a total value of 5 million dollars. By now, the next flight has already been planned, which will deliver 40 tons of products from Kandahar to India. entrepreneurs amounted to 70 cents for every kilogram of goods, but thanks to the creation of an air corridor, the costs will decrease several times — up to 20 cents, which will contribute to the Afghan agriculture and development of trade relations between the countries.
