The Ministry of Finance (MOF) and the Afghan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) presented a join proposal to President Hamid Karzai regarding a Border Management Model (BMM) that would create new cooperative guidelines for government agencies responsible for managing Afghanistan’s borders. In reply, President Hamid Karzai issued a decree supporting this new BMM for Afghanistan.
The new BMM is being implemented in order to achieve an existing International Monetary Fund benchmark, to facilitate the movement of international trade and travelers across borders, and to reduce delays and corruption opportunities arising out of the multiplicity of agencies operating at the borders.
It is currently in operation at the Hairatan Border Crossing Point, and other locations will be added in the near future.
