Karachi Port

On August 21 -26, CLDP, in partnership with the International Road Transport Union, organized an on-site mission to Pakistan focused on the enhancement of Central Asia – Pakistan regional trade and transit connectivity. The mission included a feasibility study at the Karachi port to identify technical and legal barriers and propose solutions to mitigate trade disruptions using internationally accepted procedures under the Customs Convention on the International Transport of Goods under Cover of TIR Carnets (TIR). The program also included several hands-on trainings, and the exchange of best practices from the Uzbek and Tajik TIR national association representatives on TIR and Digital TIR system for Pakistan customs officers, private sector representatives, and other non-government stakeholders in an effort to streamline and harmonize customs and border crossing procedures between Pakistan and Central Asia.
