1. Introduction to Harakat-AICFO:
Harakat – Afghanistan Investment Climate Facility Organization (AICFO) is an independent, not-for-profit, Afghan managed organization that provides grant funds to the private sector, government and civil society to implement projects that reduce or remove institutional and regulatory barriers to doing business in Afghanistan. Harakat – AICFO aims to improve Afghanistan’s business environment by removing obstacles to private investment.
Harakat does not implement or manage investment projects; it funds the activities of others, supporting the reform role of the Government and complementing the vision of the Private Sector. Harakat is an initiative of the UK’s Government, Department of International Development (DFID), which provides the initial seed funding. Other multilateral, bilateral and private sector funders will augment this seed funding to support practical, result-oriented projects that promote the following 8 priority areas:
1. Financial markets that provide greater access to finance and affordable credit to all sizes of business, especially SMEs;
2. Streamlined and more effective regulations and creation of regulatory impact assessment systems;
3. Increased private sector investment in infrastructure, especially energy, water and transportation;
4. More equitable and efficient taxation and customs systems;
5. Strengthened property rights and more effective contract enforcement;
6. Higher workforce productivity and mobility and improved labour market regulation;
7. Strengthened competition policy that reduces anti-competitive practices; and
8. Improved capacity of government and institutions to tackle corruption.
Harakat’s aim is not to replace the government, or civil society’s important work in reducing barriers to sustainable business. It supports the positive initiatives already happening in various sectors, works in partnerships with existing and emerging key players, and provides support to them so that more of these become reality. Harakat will use the available funds to identify and fund practical projects that will increase the attractiveness and ease of investing in Afghanistan.
2. Introduction to Business Integrity Network (BIN):
The business sector in Afghanistan has gone through different stages of development interrupted by frequent change of political systems and the government in the past four to five decades. As a result, among other challenges, the business sector has been operating in an ad-hoc basis and has not reached its full potential in establishing and sustaining robust and professional enterprises. Lack of internal systems and working procedures as well as a culture of social and corporate responsibility contribute to susceptibility of these businesses to corruption in dealing with the government as well as with the wider stakeholders.
In terms of fighting corruption, a lot of effort has been made to enforce rule of law, establish anti-corruption government organizations, improve punishment and prosecution, etc. as a regulatory and imposing approach by the government. Alternatively, there are immense possibilities of reducing corruption through norm-building, preventive and self-regulatory approaches among the private sector businesses. Even though the concept of self-regulation and norm-building approach among the private sector is new and untested in Afghanistan, there are tens of initiatives elsewhere that have proved essential in promoting integrity and social responsibility resulting in avoidance of corrupt activities. For instance, BCorporation, Better Business Bureau, Social Venture Network are a few examples of excellent initiatives aimed at promoting business integrity, social responsibility, and ethical conduct of business. The objective of establishing the Business Integrity Network is to create a group of transparent businesses committed to promote business integrity and transparency as well as help reduce corruption in daily operations of the private sector businesses.
Harakat funding will play an integral role in the establishment of the Business Integrity Network until the private sector businesses, as members, are able to finance the organization independently. The whole model of establishing the integrity network for promoting transparency and business ethics among businesses and reducing corruption in their transactions with the government is new and unprecedented in Afghanistan which requires initial investment from an organization like Harakat to build the initial momentum. Despite strong interest from the private sector businesses, with who detailed consultation has been done, Harakat funding is required to establish the organization and support its activities up to a level when the businesses see the initiative as an example and start joining the effort.
The key activities of Harakat’s intention of promoting corporate responsibility, through establishing and sustain the organization, fall in four main categories. First, the project will create foundations of and establish the business integrity organization. Second, the project will support the promotion and mainstreaming of Code of Ethics/Conduct for Businesses among organization members and establish support mechanisms for expansion of the organization to include more and more businesses. Third, the project will raise extensive awareness about and create a reputation for the organization as a transparent and responsible group aimed at advocating and promoting integrity, transparency, and anti-corruption initiatives. Fourth, the project will support the organization to establish partnerships and engage stakeholders from all relevant sectors including academia, civil society organizations, private sector associations, and some others.
As a result of the project endeavours, for the first time Afghanistan will have a dedicated organization aiming to promote business integrity, ethical conduct, and social responsibility among the private sector businesses. We believe the private sector will experience increased transparency, reduced transaction costs in dealing with government, and reduced corruption in their transaction with different stakeholders after completion of the project.
