First-ever shipment from Pakistan under TIR reaches Tashkent

ISLAMABAD: Adviser to Prime Minister for Commerce and Investment, Abdul Razak Dawood informed that first-ever shipment from Pakistan under Transports Internationaux Routiers (TIR) reached Tashkent, Uzbekistan in 48 hours from Torkham, Pakistan.

“A milestone has been achieved in Pakistan’s transit trade history as Pakistan Customs processed the first-ever TIR consignment,” Dawood said, adding that that connectivity with trading partners is vital for viable trade relations.

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.

He said that the structure and efficiency connectivity networks enable access to markets and should be considered a facet of the trade competitiveness.
