Afghani Money in Dubai
 
Just seen this article:-

http://www.arabianbusiness.com/afgha...ut-472864.html

Particularly scary is this statement:-

Afghanistan's central bank says that Afghans carried US$4.5bn in cash from Kabul airport last year in declared currency exports, double the amount in 2010. The bank estimates that the total amount of cash leaving Afghanistan each year could be as much as US$8bn - almost twice the size of last year's budget.

The exodus of money is even larger than the US$6.37bn in net official development assistance Afghanistan received in 2010 - 45 percent of gross domestic product - making it one of the world's most aid-dependent countries.


That is one rather large suitcase of cash :blink:

You can declare that you're taking cash out of the country?
