automation by developing one of the best custom clearance
system in the region.

satisfaction that automation had been made to develop linkages
with other departments and it would ensure more transparency
and facilitation to the business community.
The governor congratulated the Customs department on the
inauguration of anti-smuggling software which had been
developed in collaboration with Punjab Information technology
Board to monitor the anti smuggling activities.
He said that with the grace of Allah Almighty, the country
was moving towards progress and added that the sacrifices of
Pak Army Jawans, innocent children of Army Public School

problems of Overseas Pakistanis and all possible steps were
being taken to resolve their issues.
