LAHORE: Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s former president Pervez Hanif on Saturday expressed deep concern over the decision not to restore zero rated regime for five export sectors and said that the world countries were providing facilities in exports but in Pakistan, hindrances were being created.
“Instead of bowing down to the IMF’s terms, the government should look after the country’s interests. If the present government continues to leave the export sector to experiments, then the rising trend of exports would not last long,” he said in a statement.
He demanded of Prime Minister Imran Khan to take notice of their reservations in this regard and invite the export sector leaders demanding restoration of zero rated regime and take a detailed briefing from them so that they could be aware of the real facts. He said that demand to restore the zero rated regime for the five export sectors should be met so that our exports could increase further.
