PUNJAB PLYWOOD MANUFACTURERS ASSOCIATION


  • The industry is holding on to the hope of economic revival in real estate sector as well as broad based.
  • If the RCEP comes into being, the whole industry will be pushed to a shutdown because the landing cost of imported plywood and allied products will be much less than cost of manufacturing in India.

And this will surely mean:

–        Widespread Industry Shutdown

–        Huge un-employment for worker class (unskilled & semi-skilled)

–        Devastating negative impact on farmers & agriculture since agro-forestry supplying wood to               industry will complete become unviable.

–        Huge losses, in the ancillary industry supporting the plywood manufacturing, causing domino           effect of shutdowns and unemployment.

Sir, I am sure that your kind office & our prime minister – Sh. Narendra Modi, will listen to the plea of the industry in view of the above facts.

We once again pray to you to exclude Plywood & allied products from the RCEP and save the industry form closure.
