A delegation of Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry led by Sheikh Amir Waheed visited F-8 Markaz and congratulated Sardar Tahir Mehmood on his unopposed election as President, Traders Welfare Association (TWA) F-8 Markaz, Islamabad. They also congratulated Raja Abdul Qadir on being elected as Senior Vice President and Rana Javied Khursheed and Muhammad Imtiaz as Vice Presidents of the Union. Muhammad Naveed Senior Vice President, Nisar Mirza Vice President ICCI, Baser Daud, Khalid Chaudhry and others were in the delegation. 
Speaking at the occasion, Sheikh Amir Wahheed, President, Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry assured that ICCI would cooperate with TWA, F-8 Markaz, Islamabad in resolving key issues of their market. He said that the presence of district courts in F-8 Markaz was a major problem for the business community of the area and called upon the relevant authorities to shift these courts from F-8 Markaz as soon as possible to save traders from further losses. He hoped that the newly elected office bearers of TWA, F-8 Markaz would play more effective role in promoting the business interests of traders of the area. 
Muhammad Naveed Senior Vice President and Nisar Mirza Vice President ICCI said that the existence of district courts in F-8 Markaz was not only a security threat for the lives of honorable judges and lawyers, it was also creating difficulties for the traders and residents of the area. They stressed for early completion of the Islamabad High Court building to pave way for the shifting of district courts from F-8 Markaz. 
Speaking at the occasion, Sardar Tahir Mehmood, newly elected President, Traders Welfare Association (TWA) F-8 Markaz, Islamabad thanked ICCI for assuring cooperation in resolving issues of their market. He said shifting of the offices of Chief Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner ICT from F-8 to G-11/4 was a laudable step and stressed that the district courts and other offices of administration should also shifted from this important business center of Islamabad to provide a conducive environment for business activities. He said already some precious lives were lost in F-8 Markaz due to acts of terrorism and urged that no further time should be lost to shift courts from here. 
He said absence of a rent control act in Islamabad was giving rise to rent disputes of traders as they were feeling insecure about the future of their business. He stressed that ICCI should play role for early promulgation of a balanced rent control law in Islamabad to address this long standing issue of trading community of the federal capital.
