Herat customOfficials of Customs Revenue Department have reported of a 10% decline in Herat’s customs revenue this year.

According to the officials, Herat earned 11 billion AFN in customs revenue in the past eight months, which is 10% lower than previous year’s revenue.

“Herat’s customs revenue is the highest in the country; however, this year we have seen a 10% decline in the revenue,” said Ahmad Tamim, a Customs Revenue Department official.
