E-Commerce online can also be traded in lockdown If our governments develop a strategy, the federal and provincial governments should improve the industrial, trade, and business conditions in Pakistan to keep the economy stable. This will not affect business life, said Muhammad Arshad Jamal, Senior Vice Chairman, All Pakistan Customs Agents Association, while addressing a meeting on Coronavirus.
He said that man is the enemy of humanity. It is the grace of God Almighty that Muslims are definitely affected by this disease but a large number are also safe.
But this does not mean that all precautions should be taken. Therefore, the federal and provincial governments should use modern technology and control the situation not only through e-commerce online services but also Make it possible that the standard of living of the common man is not affected and lockdown can be made useful according to business life, He added.
He said that the closure of educational institutions and industries was not the solution to the problem. At present, the FBR would have to come up with a strategy to reduce business costs, enable early clearance of consignments in customs, and provide 24-hour facility to shipping lines and terminal operators.
The appointment system and queue management system for transportation needs to be improved. This will make it easier for customs clearance agents.
Mohammad Arshad Jamal said that we are working not only on these policies through various forums but also through various seminars and the public.
We are also conducting awareness programs for the people so that the common man can easily cope with this global epidemic of coronavirus and we can build a healthy society, he said.
