Afghanistan 2014: Planning for the Transition, New America, Washington

Afghanistan 2014: Planning for the Transition

Many wonder if Afghanistan can succeed as a stable, self-sustaining country when NATO completes its combat mission at the end of 2014. Afghanistan continues to rely on massive amounts of foreign aid, and its fledgling security forces are now taking the reins of a tough military campaign against well-entrenched insurgents.

But some Afghans remain confident that their nation will pull through. Saad Mohseni, Chairman of of the Moby Group, is among those who are confident in the country. His company’s portfolio  includes Tolo TV, the leading broadcaster in Afghanistan, and he has been described as Afghanistan’s first media mogul. Please join the New America Foundation’s National Security Studies Program for a conversation withMohseni about the reasons for his bullishness on Afghanistan’s future.
