Balkh customs revenue drops amid declining fuel imports

HairatanBalkh Customs Department officials have reported that revenues generated from import fees have declined by 20% from last year.

The officials have attributed the drop in revenue to the dwindling imports of fuel materials.

Hairatan port, located to the border between Uzbekistan and Balkh, collected a total of 4 billion AFN over the last 10 months, which is only half of the amount estimated by the Ministry of FInance.

Meanwhile, Head of Balkh’s Customs Department, Abdul Satar Sarhal, said this year graft had been reduced in customs offices and was not the main cause behind the declining revenues.
