Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) Member (Customs) Ms. Zeba Hai Azhar has assured the APTMA of removing all irritants in Export Facilitate Scheme (EFS) and other customs procedures, formalities to facilitate exporters by helping them focus on how to boost exports.
She visited APTMA Lahore office-bearers on Monday to hold an interactive session on exports and other Customs related issues. Highlighting the importance of exports in general and the textile industry in particular, she instructed all the officers concerned to leave no stone unturned in facilitating the textile industry for promotion of exports.
She assured of resolving all systems related issues in consultation with WeBOC, PRAL and PWC and hoped most of the system clutches moved be resolved during the week and deployed by next week. With these developments backlog would be cleared soon, she said. On demands of industry about following FBR prepared textile notes, she generally agreed with the proposal but made it clear that the industry survey would only be required if there was something new to make necessary wastes.—APP
