No.: Item 2 of component 5 Assignment Title: Technical Assistance for Preparation of Afghanistan National Single Window and Trade InformationPortal Reference No.: NPA/MoF/95/CS-1129/QCBS 1.       Background Afghanistan is a landlocked country with a long land border of over 5,529 km with difficultmountainous terrain in most places. It is surroundedby Pakistan in the south and east, Iran in the west and Turkmenistan,Uzbekistanand Tajikistan in the north. A small part also borders with China in the east. Afghanistan's access to international trade marketsdepends on efficient and reliable transport infrastructure and logistics services and transit facilities in neighboring countries,particularly Pakistan and Iran.  In fact, Pakistan is also Afghanistan's main tradingpartner followedby China and Uzbekistan respectively.  Trade with third countries ismainly through the Pakistani seaports of Karachi and Gwadar and to an extent through the Iranianseaport of Bandar Abbas with smallvolumes being shipped by air freight. Most of the petroleum products which are imported from the CentralAsia however come throughnorthern borders. Afghanistan faces one of the highest transport costs in the world, compromising thecompetitiveness of Afghan exports and increasing the prices of goods.
