Agha Shahab Ahmed Khan President KCCI, Rana Muhammad Sikandar Azam President Faisalabad CCI, Muhammad Ashraf Malik President Sialkot CCI and Saboor Malik President RCCI, Sohail Altaf former President RCCI, Almas Haider former President LCCI, Mian Umer Saleem former President Gujranwala CCI and others were in the delegation.
The Chambers leaders urged that government should develop a simplified automated tax registration process to facilitate the potential taxpayers as the current complicated tax registration system was not contributing effectively towards attracting new taxpayers. They said that business community was in favour of promoting healthy tax culture and urged that government should register all commercial connection holders in the tax net to improve tax revenue of the country. They said business community should be taken on board on all important matters of the economy so that with joint efforts, the pace of economic growth of the country could be enhanced.
Addressing the delegation, Muhammad Ahmed Waheed, President, Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry appreciated the assurance of Prime Minister Imran Khan that he would hold monthly meetings with Presidents of Chambers of Commerce and Industry for getting their input on economic issues and hoped that this practice would be helpful in addressing problems of business community and improving economic development of the country.
