Chief Commissioner ICT assures to resolve issues of business community on priority June 01, 2017
Meeting at ICCI
Zulfiqar Haider, Chief Commissioner, Islamabad Capital Territory visited Islamabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry and said that business community was playing an important role in the development of the economy and assured that he would play role to resolve their key issues. 
He said ICT Administration was fully cognizant of the issues being faced by the traders in F-8 Markaz due to the existence of district courts. However, Islamabad High Court and district courts from F-8 would be shifted in phases and this process would take some time. He said action against beggars in Islamabad has been initiated to save the citizens from problems. He said ICCI proposal for constitution of Reconciliation Committees in police stations and CPLC would be given due consideration.
He said ICT magistrates were visiting business premises to inspect the quality of products. However, he said if any businessman has any genuine complaint against their behavior or fines, he should inform him in writing so that remedial measures could be taken. He said Market Committees should cooperate in controlling prices in the month of Ramadan. He said a new design to provide access to Islamabad High Court was under consideration and its implementation would resolve the issues of traders of concerned area. He said business community should use its influence for promulgation of new rent law while ICT Administration would accommodate their point of view in the draft law. He assured that all highlighted issues would be given due consideration to provide remedy to the traders and industrialists.
Speaking at the occasion, Khalid Iqbal Malik, President, Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry highlighted the various issues of business community. He said existence of district courts in F-8 was a security risk for honorable judges and lawyers while the traders and residents of the area were also facing great problems. He said district courts should be shifted as soon as possible to avoid all such issues. He said markets in Islamabad were facing parking issues and Chief Commissioner being board member of CDA should play role in resolving this issue. He said due to absence of a new rent law, traders were feeling insecure and ICT Administration should play role in early enactment of new rent law. He said Reconciliation Committees should be formed in police stations and CPLC should be revived that would help in resolving police related issues of business community and the citizens. 
Khalid Malik, Senior Vice President, Tahir Ayub Vice President ICCI, Zafar Bakhtawari, Ejaz Abbasi, Sheikh Amir Waheed, Sheikh Pervez, Yousaf Rajput, Asad Rasheed, Babar Chaudhry, Khalid Chaudhry, Ms. Nasira Ali, Qazi Ilyas, Nadeem Mansoor and representatives of various markets also highlighted their key issues for the attention of Chief Commissioner ICT.
