The 4th g7+ Ministerial meeting under the slogan of "goodbye conflict, welcome development" wrapped up in Kabul on Thursday.
The meeting tackled different challenges faced by conflict-hit countries, including corruption and lack of infrastructure.
Participants at the summit also shed light on areas where the international community's assistance proved ineffective.
The Afghan Minister of Finance, Aklil Hakimi, said the meeting was effective in improving the international community's support and enhancing coordination among developing countries.
He also said the meeting was key to attracting the support of the international community for Afghanistan.
Representatives of the g7+ member nations meanwhile urged the international community to further assist their countries based on their needs.
"Countries that have gone through violence, countries that are still experiencing crises and those that are finished with their crises are on the path of becoming successful countries in terms of bringing themselves out of the fragile situation there were in," said Kaifala Marah, g7+ chairperson.
Participants at the meeting also explored ways to tackle unemployment, human trafficking and economic growth through attracting investment.
