Zahid Latif Malik, President Sialkot Chamber of Commerce & Industry expressed serious concerns and said that government should do necessary law making in order to protect the rights of exporter & importer both and the priority of government should be the citizens of Pakistan.
He thanked Trade Dispute Resolution Organization on behalf of Sialkot business community for consulting with important stakeholders before finalizing the rules for the resolution of International Trade Disputes, but said that the new Law is more inclined towards the interests of the foreign buyers.
