Karachi, March 20, 2016 (PPI-OT): The Union of Small and Medium Enterprises (UNISAME) thanked Prime Minister (PM) Mian Nawaz Sharif and federal commerce minister Engineer Khurram Dastagir for the final approval of the much awaited Strategic Trade Policy Framework (STPF) and urged the PM to order its fast implementation.
President UNISAME Zulfikar Thaver especially thanked the Ministry of Commerce for giving cognisance to the impediments in exports and making plan for facilitating exporters. Thaver urged the PM to consider low premium export credit guarantee insurance and finance for exports to third world countries and promoting exports to non traditional markets of non traditional and traditional goods by financing exports under collateral management schemes.
He said banking, insurance, global marketing technology and logistics are the key to export promotion and unless there is modernization in these spheres there cannot be high impact. The union expressed thanks for the research and development policy and the 0 rating for exports and for taking into account the issues of basmati rice exports. The union assured the PM of best efforts of the SME sector for value addition which is the theme of the STPF.
