KARACHI: Pakistan Leather Garments Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PLGMEA) on Tuesday disowned itself from an advertisement issued by the country’s apex trade body.
PLGMEA Chairman Danish Khan has strongly condemned the advertisement by the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI), and said that the apex trade body had used the name without the permission.
PLGMEA has nothing to do with the advertisement and no such opinion. “We are free to express our position without using the platform of FPCCI,” he said.
The FPCCI has acted unethically by using the name of the Leather Garments Association members without the permission of PLGMEA.
He said that the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce is the apex body of the business community and such high-handed tactics do not beautify such a credible institution. Such measures have tarnished the image of the institution.
Danish Khan said that PLGMEA was not part of the advertisement and the position presented in it was personal to the FPCCI.
Chairman PLGMEA demanded FPCCI to apologize from PLGMEA for their biased advertisement and refrain from taking such steps in future. PLGMEA reserved the right to take legal action on such issues.
