Islamabad: Adviser to Prime Minister for Commerce and Investment, Abdul Razak Dawood on Monday informed that first-ever shipment from Pakistan under Transports Internationaux Routiers (TIR) reached Tashkent, Uzbekistan in 48 hours from Torkham, Pakistan.
The adviser said that Pakistan’s long-term vision for trade and economic relations with Afghanistan, Uzbekistan and Central Asian Republics (CARs) was to make Pakistan a hub for trade, transit and transshipment.
The consignment consisted of herbal medicines crossed into Afghanistan after completion of all custom formalities at Torkham.
Pakistan became a member of TIR Convention in 2017 and now the convention has 68 contracting parties including China, Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey and all CARs.
The objective of the TIR Convention is to facilitate international transit through simplified Customs transit procedures and an international guarantee system.
Customs procedure takes place at origin and destination rather than at each border crossing using a single guarantee.
