Pakistan Leather Garments Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PLGMEA) has urged the government to exempt the export-oriented units in Punjab from lockdown restrictions on Saturday, besides allowing them to work in double shifts to complete their export orders under full Standard Operating Procedures.
In a statement, Chief Executive Officer PLGMEA Syed Nadeem Abbas said that export-oriented units are fully aware of COVID-19 and are strictly following the SOPs of the government.
He said that the exporters are highly perturbed and want to complete their pending export orders.
He said that the enhanced working days will allow them to complete export consignments and send shipments to avoid colossal financial losses.
