The rapidity of the collapse of Afghanistan’s pro-western government and the Taliban takeover of Kabul has astonished onlookers, politicians and public alike. The ramifications of this re-adjustment of power in the troubled Central Asian state not only raise serious questions about the value of the billions of dollars and thousands of lives spent in a twenty year intervention, but also stability of other major regional players, and the potential return of attacks in western cities, inspired by militant Islam.
This presentation by Control Risks will examine:
- Recent Afghan developments
- The outlook for security and growth in regional economies
- The danger of an increase in international terrorism for businesses and their employees
