Transit of Afghan Goods Stuck in Karachi Has Begun: ACCI

The transfer of commercial goods from Pakistan's Karachi port to Afghanistan resumed after fifteen days.

The Chamber of Commerce and Investment has said that Pakistan should be committed to complying with trade laws and should allow businesses to transfer their goods to Afghanistan normally.

This chamber emphasized that Pakistan should follow international trade laws.

"According to the official letter that was published yesterday, the legal transit goods of Afghanistan should be moved from Karachi port by passing through the border ports.

Today, as I am talking to you, they informed me a minute ago that the process is in progress,” said Yunus Momand, the first deputy of the ACCI.

Meanwhile, a number of traders said that the restrictions imposed by Pakistan on goods in transit to Afghanistan have caused huge financial losses to traders in the past two months.

"Our containers are stopped in Karachi port and everyday each container is charged 140 to 160 dollars,” said Mohammad Gul, a trader.

The Islamic Emirate said that efforts are being made to increase trade through railways and Chabahar port.

“Through the railway, efforts are being made both through Uzbekistan to Hairatan and through Aqeena and other ways that we have, and trade will increase through the railway,” Mujahid said.

Based on the information of the Chamber of Commerce and Investment, more than 4,000 containers belonging to Afghan traders were stopped at Karachi port, and daily losses of up to one million dollars were inflicted on the traders.
