Transitional Islamic State of Afghanistan, firmly recognizes the importance of information and communication technologies to achieve development. Today Afghanistan has numerous challenges to reconstruct the nation and to establish stability, such as to reform and to reorganize national institutions, to create an enabling environment for business, to fight against poverty, to disarm and reintegrate demobilized combatants. In all these and other efforts, Afghanistan considers that ICTs play an essential role. It underlines that, since the birth of the new government, there has been progress both in public and in private sector.

For example, the two telephone operators in the country have increased substantially their investment and, with the acceleration, more Afghan citizens have access to telephone lines. Afghanistan also developed infrastructure projects to connect its provinces and districts. It believes that isolated and least developed countries need more support, particularly in four key areas : support to the development of appropriate policy and legal frameworks to help private and public sector partnership; long distance and rural ICT infrastructure development; support in building local capacities, applications and transference of knowledge; support to network security, its protection against cyber attacks and crime abuse and, at the same time, support of the freedom and of the privacy of access to information.
