LAHORE (APP) - Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry has said the higher cost of production, owing to increased prices of petroleum products, would eventually lead to cut in export orders. President FPCCI Senator Ghulam Ali told APP on Monday that frequent increase in petroleum products' prices has disturbed the industrial sector, especially the manufacturers already hard hit by high input costs including prolonged gas, power loadshedding as well as weak Pak rupee. All this would hamper the industrial production in the country, he expressed his apprehension. VP SAARC Chamber of Commerce and Industry Iftikhar Ali Malik said that the industry is already facing severe energy crisis, saying that raised prices of petroleum products at this critical juncture would squeeze the liquidity. He said that high tariff of power, gas and petroleum have created another severe liquidity crunch for the importers of industrial raw material.
