President FPCCI Mian Nasser Hyatt Maggo has expressed his surprise over the instant decision by Sindh government to close general businesses, shopping malls, shops, departmental stores from 6.00 am to 6.00 pm from 26-07-2021 onwards and until further orders.
He stated that before taking such extreme decisions we must consider that Karachi is the largest trade and industrial center of the country.
The Provincial Task Force on COVID-19 established by Sindh government may be directed to have regular representation of FPCCI so that the critical decisions are made easy with mutual understandings by private sector of the country.
Maggo said that this is a major step which would badly affect the social and business sectors in all walks of life.
Before reaching such a severe decision the concerned authorities may have taken the related trade bodies and associations into confidence.
So that they were able to advice the government in a better way. Since FPCCI is the apex body of trade and industry, its member bodies and associations have conveyed their grievances and complaints in this regard.
