PESHAWAR: Collectorate of Customs will leave no effort to enhance trade ability with Afghanistan, said by Collector Mohammad Saeed Jadoon.

The collector customs vowed to highlight the difficulties faced by importers at Torkham border to the higher authorities and said the customs department is trying hard to overcome the challenges to increase the net revenue collections.
