Afghan oil importers have formed a union that consists of 106 companies.

The members elected Abdul Wahab Kefayat as the leader of the union in the first meeting of the union on Wednesday.

“The union will invest USD 6.4mn in establishing a major oil refinery in Afghanistan,” said Kefayat.

According to reports, an oil refinery called Kam Oil began its operations two days ago on the Hairatan port.

Lately, the refinery owned by Ghazanfar Group was accused of unfair trade practices.

The accusers claimed Ghazanfar of adulterating imported semi-crude oil by treating it with stabilizers, all under the pretext of refinement, which then allowed the company to charge prices that undercut the market.

President Hamid Karzai had ordered his Second Vice President, Mohammad Karim Khalili to investigate the matter.

According to Tolo News, Ghazanfar is ordered to halt its operations until the investigation by Khalili’s team is completed.

Meanwhile, Ghazanfar Chairman Al-Hajj Mohmammad Ibrahim Ghazanfar has alleged that the formation of the commission to investigate his facility was not done in the “right manner”.

“There is a businessman in the team, who himself is a claimant. We demand the government assign professional and technical people to carry out the investigations,” said Ghazanfar.(20130829)

Background:

Kefayat company has started its journey 25 years ago in Afghanistan. The main business was grocery trading. The first store was opened in Sheberghan. Taking from there, Kefayat opened a general store in Mazar-e-Sharif, the 2nd biggest commercial city of Afghanistan. In 1990, they constructed the first modern multi-storey shopping complex, Kefayat Market, in Northern Afghanistan.

Later on Kefayat opened a branch in Kabul and included carpets and food products as well. Another trading opportunity was the heavy duty vehicles and construction materials that Kefayat supplied to Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan from Russia.

During Kefayat’s stay in Afghanistan the company had survived severe macro crises.

Early 1990s was a boost for the global economy and a significant period of time for the development of our company. To be a part of this new economy, Kefayat moved the headquarters to Dubai in 1994. There Kefayat gained access to commercial banking facilities that it lacked in Afghanistan.

During Taliban Regime the Kefayat Group Companies kept a low profile in the Afghan market. In the meantime Kefayat dealt with the growing demand in Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan for lubricants and tires. To meet such demand Kefayat entered these markets as distributors of TOTAL and Hankook Tire.

In 2002 businesses in Afghanistan re-gained momentum as Kefayat invested to energy and petroleum products, lubricants, PVC & aluminum, electronics and hospitality industry.

Kefayat Group has become a leading company in Afghanistan.
