One of the leading insurance & takaful companies in Pakistan, IGI Life Vitality has signed an agreement with the National Women’s Badminton Champion of Pakistan, Palwasha Bashir. She will be the Pakistan’s Country Captain for the Vitality Running World Cup (VRWC) which is being held globally. 

 

Under this agreement, Palwasha Bashir will be the torchbearer of inculcating an active and healthy lifestyle for Pakistanis as she will push the masses to get up and start running/walking for their own good, which will in turn benefit the society.

Speaking on the occasion, Ms. Palwasha said that one should lead an active and healthy lifestyle in order to remain fit and in shape. “My admiration and compassion for running goes beyond my fitness regime and helps me stay connected to nature. I am proud to represent a population of more than 210 million Pakistanis in this global running competition where it’ll help everyone achieve their fitness targets”, she added.

Also present on the occasion was Mr. Jahangir Nazar Haidery, Head of Marketing at IGI Life Vitality, who was of the view that the VRWC is the perfect platform to showcase the competitive spirit amongst nations which are more active in terms of their day to day routines, thus defeating the sedentary lifestyles.

With the inception of Vitality in Pakistan in 2019, when it tied up with IGI Life Insurance as the first active life insurance product, the message has been loud and clear – get active, and get rewarded since the Vitality policy gives its customers the opportunity to avail discounted food vouchers, mobile top ups, discounted cinema tickets and digital discounts from buy-one-get-one platforms as well as protection from unforeseen circumstances.

The North Karachi Industrial Area Industrialists and the United Founder Group (UFG) have vowed to continue to play a vital role in the development of the country and the creation of vast employment opportunities in the best interests of the country’s development and economy.

By the joint efforts, mutual alliance, they will thwart any conspiracy to destroy North Karachi Industrial Area

In a joint statement, UFG and the industrialists of sector 11-G/11-F, said that the garment industries located here are playing their full role in the economic development of Pakistan. Yet there is a conspiracy to destroy the local garment industry which we will never allow to succeed. The Khatri community, which is at the forefront of the local garment industry and represents it, stands by the North Karachi Association and will continue to do so.

The industrialists thanked the North Karachi Association of Trade & Industry (NKATI) for playing its Vital role in providing all possible facilities while realizing the importance of local garments industries, and said that they are satisfied to add that No group has a monopoly on the NKATI and nor will the monopoly of any group be allowed, as only those who work for the welfare and development of the North Karachi Industrial Area should lead the association.

Exporters face slew of difficulties due to Cotton, Yarn shortages, skyrocketing prices https://citynews.com.pk/2021/09/07/exporters-face-slew-of-difficulties-due-to-cotton-yarn-shortages-skyrocketing-prices/ https://citynews.com.pk/2021/09/07/exporters-face-slew-of-difficulties-due-to-cotton-yarn-shortages-skyrocketing-prices/#respond Tue, 07 Sep 2021 11:05:15 +0000 https://citynews.com.pk/?p=12104 Pakistan Yarn Merchants Association(PYMA), has appealed Prime Minister Imran Khan to take steps to reduce the cost of production of value-added textile industry, in view of the shortage of cotton, cotton yarn and the skyrocketing prices and allow duty-free import of cotton and cotton yarn from Turkey, India and Uzbekistan by land.

Pakistan Yarn Merchants Association(PYMA), has appealed Prime Minister Imran Khan to take steps to reduce the cost of production of value-added textile industry, in view of the shortage of cotton, cotton yarn and the skyrocketing prices and allow duty-free import of cotton and cotton yarn from Turkey, India and Uzbekistan by land.

So that exporters can compete in the ongoing price race in international markets.

In an appeal to Prime Minister, Hanif Lakhany, Vice President, Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FPCCI) & Senior Vice Chairman Pakistan Yarn Merchants Association(PYMA), Farhan Ashrafi, Vice Chairman PYMA & convener FPCCI’s Central Standing Committee on Yarn Trading, said that the value-added sector in the country is facing immense difficulties due to shortage and price of cotton and cotton yarn reaching record levels, as cotton yarn is not available to these export industries even at high prices as per the production demand.

“If this situation continues, not only will it be difficult to fulfil export orders, but Pakistani exporters will also lose the ability to compete in global markets. Which could have a negative impact on the country’s exports, so the government should seriously consider PYMA’s proposal in the best interest of the country’s economy”, they feared.

PYMA office-bearers added that the exporters in the value-added sector are reluctant to accept new orders due to difficulties in procuring basic raw materials. Due to which these orders can be transferred to other countries.

Hanif Lakhany, Farhan Ashrafi appealed to Prime Minister Imran Khan to assist exporters in fulfilling old export orders in time, and taking new orders, while also issue directives to allow duty-free import of cotton, cotton yarn from Turkey, India and Uzbekistan by land.

This will not only reduce the import period of raw materials but will also help in reducing the cost of freight charges.

Internationally, all cargo operations are carried out on a 24-hour basis and consignment clearance and duties and taxes are paid online, but consignments are not cleared online in Pakistan, which delays the clearance of consignments.

Internationally, consignments should be cleared within 48 hours. These views were expressed by Muhammad Arshad Jamal, Leader, All Pakistan Customs Agents Association, in a joint meeting with traders of MCC Preventive Air Freight Unit, Karachi.۔

He said that on the one hand the government was advocating the concept of single window operation and clearance was also introducing a clearance system called “In the Sky” while on the other hand traders were having to pay heavy taxes for clearance of their valuables. Business costs are skyrocketing and the service sector is blaming each other, but government officials are silent and indifferent to trade facilitation.

Mohammad Arshad Jamal said that some important issues need to be resolved on an urgent basis and instructions need to be given to the concerned authorities.

But consignment exams have been delayed for a long time due to a lack of staff, which has led to a lack of facilities at the air freight unit. He said that delivery of consignment should be made possible by 10 pm and clearance of consignment should be done in minimum time to reduce business costs.

In addition, four examination officers should be posted in Jerry Danata to check the consignment.

On this occasion, Qamar-ul-Islam, Vice Chairman, All Pakistan Customs Agents Association, highlighted the issues related to delay in payment of terminal charges. He said that they have only one counter at the terminal for the collection of documents and issuance of payment vouchers while at least 4 counters should be required so that the time of traders is not wasted.

Listening to Asia’s point of view and saying that your observations are very accurate and Customs is also reviewing trade facilities in a safe business environment, he said that clearance in the Sky system and PSW are big projects that facilitate trade The consignment clearance process will take place.

In a detailed discussion, he directed the terminal operators to improve the quality of services provided to the traders and increase the delivery time of consignment till 10 pm. He said that the customs staff will be available till the last parcel is delivered to you.

He assured us that we are here for your convenience and You can visit us at any time for any issue. Shehzad Ali said that we are working under the direction of customs officials.

Trade facilitation is our priority. He said that we are ready to work 24 hours a day if the customs staff is present on the spot and gives us permission and assures us that they are increasing the counters.

At the end of the meeting, APCA Senior Vice Chairman Muhammad Arshad Jamal expressed his gratitude to Additional Collector Dr. Amir Nawaz.

Pakistan Yarn Merchants Association (PYMA), while expressing serious concerns over the Sindh government’s move to set a minimum wage of Rs 25,000 against the minimum wage of Rs 20,000 announced in the federal budget, and demanded Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah to fix the minimum wage in Sindh at Rs 20,000 on an equal basis Like the federation and other provinces, so that the cost of businesses and industries does not increase.

In a statement, Hanif Lakhany, Senior Vice Chairman & VP, FPCCI, Farhan Ashrafi, Vice Chairman PYMA & Convener, FPCCI Yarn Trading Standing Committee, said that business and industries are already suffering from serious crises caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and are struggling to survive.

In the federal budget, Finance Minister Shaukat Tarin had announced a minimum wage of Rs 20,000. Keeping this in mind, other provinces also set minimum wages, but Sindh province announced a minimum wage of Rs 25,000 instead of Rs 20,000, contrary to the ground realities. Which is by no means applicable to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the severe economic crisis.

“Sindh government’s decision to set a minimum wage of Rs 25,000 would affect those businesses and industries the most, who apart from other provinces, also do their business in Sindh and deploy their staff in the provinces from time to time. In such a scenario, how can those institutions afford to pay higher minimum wages in Sindh than other provinces under Transformation”, they Pointed out.

PYMA office-bearer citing the example of the Export Processing Zone (EPZ), said that it is a federal institution, whose employees work in different provinces, and in Sindh province, EPZ will pay Rs 20,000 announced by the federation, then how those businesses can pay Rs 25,000, who are working from Sindh in other provinces. He urged the Sindh government to implement minimum wage @ Rs20,000 on equal basis.

Hanif Lakhany, Farhan Ashrafi demanded Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah that keeping in view the ground realities like the federation and other provinces, the minimum wage in Sindh should be fixed at Rs 20,000, so that instead of increasing the production cost of businesses and industries, they can be helped to survive the Corona epidemic.
