15% rise in Nimroz customs revenue

The customs department of the western Nimroz province has recorded 6.5bn AFN in revenue for this year, seeing a 15% increase over the previous year.

Customs Diretor Wais Sultani attributed the boost in revenue to the improvements that were brought by establishing various facilities.

In an interview with the Pajhwok Afghan News (PAN), Sultani said eight warehouses were built and 29,000 square meters land were concreted at a total cost of USD 2mn with financial collaboration from the World Bank.

One of the facilities created allows for swift processing of imported goods, he added. Computerization and installation of laboratories are other improvements.

Sultani complained that the Iranian government banned the entry of some transit trucks coming to the port.

According to PAN, the customs department lost 15-18mn AFN on a daily basis last year as a result of the ban.
