Customs Reform in Afghanistan

This research was carried out from February to August 2011 to assess the impact of the changes made since 2001 and to identify pathways for future planning and programming in attempts to institute a fully functioning customs system. The rationale for this research was that further plans to reform the system need to be based on a close examination of what has been accomplished to date and the identification of the barriers and bottlenecks that Afghan traders continue to face in moving merchandize to and from the border entry points.
