Business

January 14, 2020

LAHORE: Goods transporters’ strike has put millions of dollars’ export orders at stake, besides causing problems to importers, exporters and local industry, halting trade and industrial activities across the country, a statement said on Monday.

Cargo supplies remained suspended for the eighth consecutive day due to the strike. Expressing concern, Pakistan Hosiery Manufacturers Association (PHMA) Vice Chairman Shafique Butt said that the strike has been hitting the exports hard, as their supplies are being interrupted by the transporters’ protesting groups at the entry point of Karachi.

He urged the government to resolve the issue through result-oriented dialogues to end the strike. Blaming both the government and opposition for the deteriorating state of economy, he said, the government, as well as the opposition were indifferent towards the country’s export crisis.
