USAIDâ€™s Afghanistan Small and Medium Enterprise Development (ASMED) project is a five-year development assistance program that seeks to create economic growth through the improvement of private sector productivity. ASMED focuses on five main economic development activities in order to strengthen economic growth led by a thriving, licit Afghan private sector: 1) Gathering, analyzing and disseminating market information; 2) Developing dynamic Business Development Services (BDS) providers; 3) Strengthening and increasing the numbers of business associations; 4) Creating public-private sector alliances; and 5) Building the capacity of an Afghan private sector workforce.
