Imposition of Regulatory Duty on Items

Imposition of Regulatory Duty on Items


Sumera Saeed | October 17, 2017 | category: Uncategorized

Imposition of Regulatory Duty on Items. The Government of Pakistan through their Notification dated 16th October 2017 has imposed Regulatory Duty vide SRO 1035 (I)/2017 on many items.

Pakistan Electronics Manufacturer’s Association (PEMA) represents the interests and viewpoints of the “Manufacturers” of electronics and home appliances goods in Pakistan and we have a long term investments and commitment to our country. We would like to register our strong objections on both on the contents of the said SRO and also the manner in which this decision has been taken by the Government.

We have the following views;

  1. The Federal Government has taken this decision in haste, unilaterally and without consultation with any of the stake holders,especially the industry.
  2. If at all the imposition of this Regulatory Duty was inevitable, the relevant authorities should have rationalized the items to be selected, the percentage of Duty to be imposed should have been cascaded and adequate time for industries to hedge their exposures and manage their production inventories should have been given. This measure reflects the ad-hoc culture of our policy makers and denies the industries of our country to have any level of trust and confidence on the affairs of their Government.
  3. The real objectives of the Federal Government in imposition of the Regulatory Duty has been communicated to be reduction of imports and raising of additional revenues for the Government exchequer. However, the relevant authorities have failed to incorporate lessons from previous such measures. In practicality,such policies only encourage under-invoicing, smuggling and other illegal practices and the net result is actual reduction of revenue collection, a complete failure in achieving the desired objectives.
  4. Electronics and Home Appliances products such as Refrigerators, Air conditioners and Televisions are not classified as “luxury” items globally.Our products are classified as “Consumer Durables”, a necessity in context to modern lifestyle – urban or rural. This is evident from the fact that our products are sold throughout Pakistan, from up-market urban high-streetsfor the elites to the small towns & villages catering to the masses.Hence,inclusion of these products in the list of“luxury items” is incorrect and erroneous.
  5. Finally, we are the importers of parts, components and materials required by our factories to manufacture these goods in Pakistan. These factories generate huge amounts of taxes for the government and provide large scale employment to the people of our country. Imposing Regulatory Duty on components, parts and materials is in absolute negation to the industrial policy of our country, as such measures shall make local production unviable.

In light of the above, we strongly urge the Federal Government to withdraw with immediate effect the Regulatory Duty imposed on parts, components and materials of our products required by our industries.

The Economic Benefits of the Modern Silk Road – CPEC

The Economic Benefits of the Modern Silk Road – CPEC


Sumera Saeed | October 10, 2017 | category: Business

The Economic Benefits of the Modern Silk Road – CPEC. ACCA and PCI today launched their first joint report on the Belt and Road Initiative in Pakistan called The Economic Benefits of the Modern Silk Road – CPEC. http://bit.ly/ModernSilkRoad

“For the last almost 3 years the business community and finance professionals have been talking about the economic benefits of the China Pakistan Economic Corridor, for Pakistanis CPEC has become as familiar an acronym as NOC, CNIC and JIT. We all know about the various projects that make up CPEC like Gwadar port, extension and modification of the Karakoram highway, new motorways, railways including may be even bullet trains, enterprise zones and off course energy plants, but has the business community started thinking about the impact of CPEC on their strategies? What will be the long term benefits?

How can businesses prepare for new opportunities and challenges? Where do they need to invest or allocate resource to capitalise on the future? What are the risks and how to navigate around them? What are the possible scenarios north or south or the good the bad and the ugly? Clearly a lot of deep dive thinking still needs to happen” says Arif Masud Mirza, Regional Head of Policy for ACCA.

The report was a joint initiative with the country’s leading think tank, the Pakistan-China Institute (PCI). According to PCI Executive Director, Mustafa Hyder Sayed

“this report indicates that investment in people, for example, learning Mandarin, understanding Chinese business culture and increased networking i.e. the people to people contact which is one of the pillars of CPEC, must be embedded in the long-term mission of the private and public sectors. Pakistan’s manpower; professional, skilled, semi-skilled and unskilled must match or be better than their Chinese counterparts if our nation is to ensure that CPEC’s long term benefits don’t start heading South.”

Sajjeed Aslam, Head of ACCA Pakistan said “We could see and hear the chatter on CPEC in professional networks very early on; a lot was hearsay which in itself can be a risk for businesses, the numbers being talked about where historic by Pakistani standards USD46bn multiplying to USD62bn later.  The report ,The Economic Benefits of the Modern Silk Road – CPEC contains the result of a survey amongst 500 finance professionals and business stakeholders as well the outcomes from 5 SWOT workshops in Baluchistan, KPK, Punjab, Sindh and Islamabad. The SWOTs revealed a common trend such as knowledge gaps, opportunities included regional trade and commerce, new cities and job creation; strengths included leveraging on the country’s educational institutes,scaling up agriculture and tourism, lastly, the threats revolve around environmental, social and governance challenges.”

The report writer Malik Mirza, FCCA, spent several months researching and interviewing diverse stakeholders across the country said “the SWOTs are a great way to get people to think strategicallyand ensure that we don’t just look at the blue sky only. ACCA 100 drivers for change provided a good pivot point for professionals to look at what skills will be needed to prepare for the future and these are explored in the report. Almost 70% agreed and strongly agreed that new skills will be needed in the future and 74.4% said they agreed and strongly agreed that there is a marked difference in business styles between the Chinese and Pakistani. Surprisingly over 80% agreed or strongly agreed that investing in Chinese language was desirable but on the ground we are not witnessing this investment.”

The full report is available online: http://bit.ly/ModernSilkRoad
