101 East investigates the rise of Chinese language buyers in Afghanistan within the wake of the Taliban takeover.
When the Taliban returned to energy in August 2021, most foreigners and multinational corporations had already packed up and left Afghanistan.
Going in opposition to the stream of foreigners fleeing the nation was a bunch in search of “once-in-a-lifetime” alternatives: Chinese language entrepreneurs.

As soon as a small minority, Chinese language nationals now make up Afghanistan’s greatest group of expatriates.
With unique entry to main Chinese language buyers, 101 East investigates their rising affect throughout Afghanistan’s enterprise and media sectors.
