Expressing his views about the exhibition, Khalid Iqbal Malik, President, Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry has said that women are half of our population and they have great potential to excel in every field. However due to lack of opportunities for women, country could not exploit as yet their potential for its economic development. He said ICCI is focusing on economic empowerment of women by encouraging them towards entrepreneurship and organizing this 3-day exhibition is another positive step in that direction. He hoped that this event would help women entrepreneurs to improve their business prospects. He said citizens should take active part in the exhibition to purchase the products of their interest.
