LAHORE - Khawaja Khawar Rashid, Executive Committee Member Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) emphasized the government to allow to import of all products from India which are not produced in Pakistan especially Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol (HS Code 3823.7000).

He said there are several products which are prohibited to import from India. Same products everybody can import from other countries including Europe but not from India.

In some cases European companies source out their products from India and then re-export to Pakistan. Obviously such imports involving other countries and companies cause a very sizeable impact on cost and this impact affects all including importers, traders, users and other consumers. So in best interest of the country and business community and users also government should allow to import all those things which are not producing in Pakistan, he added. We can save a reasonable amount just to change our importing policies he emphasized.
