LAHORE - Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Saturday launched online version of Certificate of Origin (CO), an integral part of export documents.

The “origin” does not refer to the country where the goods were shipped from but to the country where they were made. In the event the products were manufactured in two or more countries, origin is obtained in the country where the last substantial economically justified working or processing is carried out.
