Torkham’s customs revenue up by 20% despite decline in trade activity

Officials of the Customs Department at the Torkham dry port in eastern Nangarhar province have reported a 20% increase in their customs revenue this fiscal year.

According to Pajhwok Afghan News (PAN), the department has recorded 117mn Afghanis increase in this year’s revenue compared to last year’s despite a 30% decline in the trade activity.

The officials have cited corruption controls in the department as the main factor behind the boost in the revenue.

Department’s head Bashir Ahmad Sadat said improved scanning systems to detect drugs and weapons and to prevent inflow of smuggled goods from Pakistan have been established.

He added trade activity began to pick up pace after the elections process ended and the new administration signed the Bilateral Security Act (BSA).
