The President of FPCCI Mr. Ghazanfar Bilour has expressed his serious concern on the surge of US Dollar to an alarming level. He also showed his dismay over the rising prices of all essential items and utilities, which are going to seriously hurt the common man and the cost of doing businesses.
Mr. Bilour said that People’s expectation form the new Government are fading fast and the expected relief for the poor masses is nowhere in sight.
The devaluation of rupee will bring a massive hike in the prices specially petroleum prices and other imported raw material. This will seriously effect the overall economy and already stressed export performance.
He demanded that the Government should bring certainty to its economic policies and its uncertain stance on many issues is seriously affecting the Country’s economy.
