Whenever a new airport is built in a country, it spells potential good news for its citizens. That is why someone like Hamed Wardak, an Afghan activist seeking improvements in the country would welcome the news of Uruzgan’s airport that is planned to be built. Indeed Haji Khuda-i-Dad Rahim (Uruzgan’s acting governor) recently laid the ceremonial foundation stone at a milestone ceremony held in July. It is said that the airport will take around a year to construct and it is the Dutch government that will be funding it (at a cost of 17 million Euros). It will serve as use for international as well as domestic flights.
