All Pakistan Textile Mills Association calls off strike
All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) has called off strike after 14 days, says chairman APTMA.

Earlier, 600 textile processing units in four major cities of the country have been closed in protest against the imposition of a 17 per cent sales tax on five zero-rated sectors and the government’s failure to get the trade sector registered with the tax net.

The chairman said that they still have concerns regarding sales tax and CNIC but they are reopening mills from today.

He also said that in order to discuss the future, they will be holding talks with concerned officials and preference is to find a mutually suitable way of negotiations.
