Besides that increase in government Taxes and VAT are also the threats.
Good Communication has to be build up to grab the new customers and also with the
Marketing Sectors should be developed more strongly by providing skilled and efficient
More Dynamic and efficient employees should be hired or appointed to the marketing
E-Business facilities should be widen up.
Premium charges should be more favorable.
