Fio said that this is hurting the export-import community to a great extent, with most of the small and medium businesses. He said that due to lack of supply of goods, the orders of exporters are seen to be canceled, and importers will also suffer. The letter said that if the situation does not improve immediately, many exporters will have to close their offices and they will go bankrupt.
