Description

In the context of the Friendship Treaty between France and Afghanistan, ratified in 2012, the Ministry for the Interior is conducting a programme of cooperation which provides training for the thirty-four Afghan Vice-Governors whose role, in their country, is comparable to that of a sub-prefect or secretary-general at a prefecture.


With the assistance of the French embassy in Kabul and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in partnership with the ENA, these senior officials have received training in France throughout October, and were in particular in Lyon in order to observe local good practices and to meet the various institutional and socio-economic stakeholders there.
