KARACHI: The SITE Association of Industry (SAI) has feared shifting of export orders due to the government’s decision of discontinuing gas supply to general industries from Feb 1 and export-oriented sectors from March 1.
SAI President Abdul Hadi in a statement on Tuesday said the government knew that due to Covid-19 issues the export orders of India and Bangladesh had been diverted to Pakistan where the situation was comparatively better.
“How can these export orders be completed and shipped on time if gas is disconnected?” he questioned, asking Prime Minister Imran Khan to reverse the decision.
He also criticised the power tariff hike.
