KARACHI: The leadership of Businessmen Group (BMG) and office bearers of the Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) extended heartfelt congratulations to Imran Khan on taking oath as 22nd Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
In a statement issued, Chairman Businessmen Group and Former President KCCI Siraj Kassam Teli, Vice Chairmen BMG & former presidents KCCI Tahir Khaliq, Zubair Motiwala, Haroon Farooki and Anjum Nisar, President KCCI Muffasar Atta Malik, Senior Vice President Abdul Basit Abdul Razzak and Vice President Rehan Hanif hoped that Prime Minister Imran Khan would now prioritize some of the urgent economic issues being faced by the country and pay special attention to the problems being suffered by the business and industrial community of Karachi since long.
Recalling the last meeting with Imran Khan on July 22, 2018 at a reception hosted by KCCI just a couple of days before the election, BMG leadership and KCCI office bearers expected that Prime Minister Imran Khan would fulfill all his commitments made to the business community of KCCI, particularly his pledge towards improving the infrastructure of Karachi and resolving the issues being faced by the business and industrial community of this city which continues to contribute a mammoth share of more than 65 percent revenue to the national exchequer despite all odds.
They stressed that PM Imran Khan must gather a team of economic experts, reliable and honest members of business community, who have absolute know-how of the issues on top priority from different sectors of the economy. The proposed team comprising of genuine representatives of business and industrial community would surely be able to prudently guide the government in formulating numerous policies directly or indirectly affecting the trade and industry. This step would certainly create a win-win situation and would be warmly welcomed by the entire business and industrial community of Pakistan as it is in the larger interest of the country, they added.
