Revenue from Hairatan Port dwindles

hairatan jpgA decline in import duty on liquefied gas and fuel has dropped the revenues from fuel imports through the Hairatan Port to USD 5mn from USD 8mn in the previous year.

The fuel and gas department at the port linked the drop in the revenue to unhealthy competition among traders and hike in the customs duty.

“Pakistan and Iran, concerned over Afghan fuel imports from Uzbekistan, are goading traders into import goods through Torkham and Islam Qala dry ports,” Pajhwok Afghan News quotes Mohammad Saber Zaheer, Head of the department.

A trader, Syed Tahir Roshanzada, cited corruption in the customs department as one of the reasons behind the decline in the revenue.
