Customs agents strike worries Pak garment exporters
Mar '12
The ongoing strike of customs agents has raised the concerns of garment exporters in Pakistan, as their shipments are getting delayed.

The strike has been called to protest the rise in goods handling charges at the Quaid-e-Azam International Airport in Karachi.

Voicing its concern, the Pakistan Readymade Garments Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PRGMEA) said the strike is causing delay in air-shipments of garment exporters, and overseas buyers are getting annoyed with Pakistani suppliers.

The association stated that there are constant complaints from buyers, who are upset that one or the other problem comes in way in their dealings with Pakistan.

PRGMEA said overseas buyers claim that their dealings with other countries like Vietnam and Bangladesh to be much smoother, as compared to those with Pakistan.

Garment exporters in the country are thus apprehending that continued adversities may compel them to shift their businesses, PRGMEA stated.

It added that the country's garment exporters are already confronted with several issues and they cannot afford to see new issues cropping up each day. They urged the concerned authorities to fetch an early solution to resolve the issue behind the strike.
