Leather firms condemn two-weekly offs

May '10
The government's decision of observing two-weekly offs has met with strong opposition from the Chairman, Pakistan Tanners Association (PTA), Gulzar Firoz, as owing to this, banks and other government departments including Customs Offices remain closed on Saturdays, which is adversely affecting the businessmen.

With their consignments not getting cleared, the leather industry's manufacturing activities are also getting badly affected; leading to a disturbance in the industry's manufacturing units.

Due to two-weekly offs; both the business group and the country's financial resources are incurring losses. Also, with the overseas sales of leather industry goods already on a downward movement, the government's decision has further increased the problems and it will be impossible for the industry to attain their set export targets under these circumstances, said Firoz.

Last week during the Business Persons Council (BPC) meet held in Islamabad, chaired by the Prime Minister's Advisor on Finance and also during separate meetings with the Prime Minister and President of Pakistan, Firoz raised the problems arising due to two-weekly offs.

The issues raised by Firoz were also supported by members of other industries and an urgent withdrawal of the decision of two-weekly offs was urged, so as to protect the export related industries from incurring more heavy losses.
