Shaikh Fazal Ahmed, Vice Chair­man of All Pak­istan Sol­vent Ex­trac­tor’s As­so­ci­a­tion, along with other of­fice bear­ers of the As­so­ci­a­tion held a meet­ing with S. M. Muneer, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive, TDAP, to dis­cuss is­sues faced by ex­porters in the field. Ini­tially they raised the is­sue of “Ban on im­port of Pak­istani Rapseed / Canola Meal by China” last Fe­bru­ary and ef­forts taken by them to lift the ban. They sought as­sis­tance of TDAP to lift the ban be­cause their ef­forts could not get the de­sired re­sults.

Chief Ex­ec­u­tive TDAP im­me­di­ately con­tacted. Erfa Iqbal, Pak­istan Com­mer­cial Coun­selor in Beijing to take up the mat­ter with the con­cerned au­thor­i­ties in China. A com­pre­hen­sive let­ter along with re­quired doc­u­ments was emailed to her to avoid any fur­ther de­lay. It is ex­pected that after the ban is lifted, Pak­istan’s ex­ports in the sec­tor will in­crease by US $ 1 Mil­lion.

The is­sues re­lated with GST and FBR was also dis­cussed and S.M. Muneer asked the at­ten­dees to give writ­ten pro­pos­als so that the mat­ter could be taken with the au­thor­i­ties in the FBR. He termed the ex­ist­ing po­lit­i­cal cri­sis detri­men­tal to the econ­omy of Pak­istan in gen­eral and ex­ports of Pak­istan in par­tic­u­lar.
