EXPERTS ON AFGHANISTAN COME TOGETHER FOR UNPRECEDENTED CONFERENCE AT QUEENS COLLEGE

--Keynote speech by a former senior economic advisor to Pres. Karzai; organized by a QC Bangladeshi Student to Raise Awareness of Problems in Afghanistan and Present Solutions--

WHAT: “Afghan Peace and Development Conference.” Officials from the government of Afghanistan and experts from academia, journalism and non-profit organizations will discuss that nation’s problems, particularly in the areas of political and economic development, and propose policy recommendations to the Afghan government. This conference, the first of its kind to bring together primarily Afghans to produce solutions for Afghans, is sponsored by Queens College and a variety of student organizations. (Queens has the largest Afghan population in New York City.)



The conference was organized by Glen Oaks, Queens, resident Aniqa Islam, a graduating honors student of Bangladeshi heritage at Queens College. Islam, who has many Afghan friends and aspires to a career in economic development, feels passionately about the importance of bringing peace and stability to this impoverished, war-torn nation. Through a connection at the Afghanistan Peace Association (APA) and with the help of her fellow students and academic organizations at Queens College, she was able to contact and engage Afghan leaders to participate in the conference.
