Iraq's Customs Administration achieved revenues of more than 122 billion Iraqi dinars (roughly $102 million) during the past seven months, an Administration's official media source said on Saturday.
"The Administration's revenues during the first half of this year totaled more than 101 billion Iraqi dinars, while proceeds from other customs outlets during July 2008 hit 21 billion Iraqi dinars," the source, who asked not to have his name revealed, told Aswat al-Iraq – Voices of Iraq – (VOI).
The Customs Administration, a government-owned institution, is affiliated to the finance ministry.
"The Administration's revenues would maximize the state resources and enhance the federal government's budget," the source said.
