The Afghan Economic Society (AES) is the first countrywide academic society in Afghanistan.

The main activities and objectives of the AES are the following:

• Promoting and conducting high standard research to build a better understanding of Afghanistan’s economic challenges and opportunities

• Promoting relationships with the national and international public and private sector as well as academic bodies

• Supporting the relevant bodies to improve and standardize the higher education system in Afghanistan through the revision of curriculums, educational programs, teaching and examination procedures related to economics and management

• Establishing a data bank to store relevant data and publications in order to facilitate potential research and make information available

• Other necessary actions to build a better understanding of Afghanistan’s economy

The AES is funded by the DAAD, currently until the end of 2021.
