Customs Tariffs See Threefold Hike on Import

The Afghan government has increased tariffs on imported goods from 150 to 450 thousand Afghanis per container. Afghan businessmen have protested in response to this decision.

The increase in customs tariffs has led to threats by Afghan businessmen. The businessmen said on Tuesday that they will close the markets if tariffs are not lowered.

The Deputy Head of the Afghan Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Khan Jan Alkozay, said that the government’s decision is unjust.
