“The State Bank has given interim relief by allowing 50% of imports based on our monthly average imports in March, April, May, and June.” Maqsood Ur Rehman Rehmani, Vice President and Company Secretary at Honda Cars Pakistan Limited revealed. 

“The industry was already suffering from the higher cost of importing integrated circuit (IC) chips due to a global chip shortage and then the import restrictions were imposed. Everyone has to pay demurrage on our cargo stuck at the ports, which is made worse due to higher container detention charges because of a container shortage. Manufacturers have utilized their ckd reserves to meet orders, however, if the conditions persist then I am unsure how everyone in the industry will survive” he added.
