Staff Reporter

President Federation Pakistan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI) Mian Nasser Hyatt Maggo has demanded that Chaman border should be reopened with immediate effect to allow exports to Afghanistan and Central Asian countries.

He said Chaman border has been shut down for more than a month now; unlike Torkham border, which continues to be operational.

In a statement issued here on Wednesday, Mian Nasser Hyatt Maggo explained that SMEs in Pakistan are already in unprecedented distress due to a plethora of adverse factors like COVID-19, depreciation of Pak Rupee, instability in the region, rising fuel & logistics’ costs and high-handedness of the taxation authorities.
