It is a matter of great pleasure for me to extend warm felicitations to the Federal Board of Revenue and Pakistan Customs on the occasion of the 68th anniversary of International Customs Day on 26th January 2020. Pakistan joins World Customs Organization and its members in celebrating this important landmark as this day affords us an opportunity to reaffirm WCO's mission of enhancing effectiveness and efficiency of Customs Administration.

The International Customs Day is dedicated to the contribution of Customs towards a sustainable future where social, economic, health and environmental needs are at the heart of our actions, with the slogan "Customs fostering Sustainability for People, Prosperity and the Planet".

The theme which has been set by WCO seems to be even more effective for countries like Pakistan which has great potential, no doubt things are getting better but still needs to lot of improvement maintaining sustainability for the Environment will definitely boost economic development and bring prosperity among the people. On behalf of Karachi Customs Agents Association.

We all appreciate that Customs Administrators who are playing a vital role in smooth flow of working towards trade facilitation and specially Customs preventive who are at the front in the fight against smuggling which is an economic terrorism and organized crime. I also would like to appreciate the role of Directorate of Reforms and Automation toward the modernization of the system which has made it possible to handle increased volumes of trade today.
