Twofold increase in Farah’s customs revenue

Farah revenue Revenue from customs in Farah province has increased by two-fold during the first 9 months of the current year compared to the same period last year.

According to the officials, last year’s revenue stood at 700mn AFN in the first 9 months, while this year revenues have boosted up to 1.6mn AFN.

Customs Department Director Sayed Muzamil Shah Sadat attributed the increase in revenue to better management, fight against corruption and providing better trade facilities.

This comes as Representative of Farah has complained to the Provincial Council about the endemic corruption in the customs department of Farah and about the inflow of smuggled and low-quality goods into the market.

Situated in Western Afghanistan, Farah shares a border with Iran that generates significant revenue from customs to the province.
