ISLAMABAD, Dec 15 (APP): Adviser to Prime Minister for Commerce and Investment, Abdul Razak Dawood on Tuesday appreciated the role of Federal Board of Revenue (FBR), especially Pakistan Customs, in reducing the level of smuggling.

This has enabled more formal importation thereby increasing revenue, Adviser said in a tweet.
