The Chairman FBR visited the CCI, Quetta. The chamber President warmly welcomed the Chairman FBR. The members highlighted the problems being faced by the importers and exporters of Balochistan and urged for their speedy solution.

The major issues of traders pertained to contravention cases initiated by the Directorate of Intelligence and Investigation, Quetta against various importers. They further complained that they were being subjected to unwarranted checking of imported consignments by the Customs and different LEAs.
