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 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.
