CBR Plans Reference Value Database

According to the DAWN Business, Friday Oct. 22, 2004, CBR has decided to establish a database with the intent "for maintaining uniformity in assessment of imported goods at all custom stations." The effort is worth a pat on the back.

How manu custom officials would actually consult such a database is anybody's guess. Unless the plague of corruption is carefully diagnosed and eradicated, such projects would fail to deliver and end up as losses showing up on the national income statement.

I wonder whether a feasibility study was conducted for this.
