The Diplomat and TOLONews highlight the 2018 Survey of the Afghan People

January 7, 2019 — The Diplomat Magazine and TOLONews highlights the 2018 Survey of the Afghan People in an opinion piece by M. Ashraf Haidari, the Ambassador of Afghanistan to Sri Lanka.

Despite their wariness, Afghans have not lost hope in their partners, or in the future of their country. An Asia Foundation survey of the Afghan people released in 2018 confirms that a widespread mood of optimism and sense of unity exists among Afghans: “Over half of Afghans surveyed (59.6 percent) report that the National Unity Government (NUG) is doing a good job. Perceptions of provincial governments have also improved, with 61.3 percent reporting their performance as ‘very good’ or ‘somewhat good,’ up from 56.9 percent in 2017.”
