Ban on imports from China: KCCI demands ‘special policy’ to save importers

President KCCI Agha Shahab Ahmed Khan has urged the Ministry of Maritime Affairs, FBR and SBP to come up with some kind of a ‘Special Policy’ to save the importers of various goods and commodities from suffering severe losses due to ban imposed on imports from China because of the outbreak of coronavirus. He said that many importers, while seeking KCCI’s assistance, informed that their imported consignments from China have been put on hold at the ports in order to prevent the outbreak of deadly coronavirus in Pakistan. He urged the relevant authority to issue notification in which the port authorities and all terminal operators must be advised to refrain from imposing demurrage and detention charges on those consignments which have already arrived at the Pakistani ports from China but were not being cleared.
