It was really encouraging for the entire business & industrial community that the Businessmen Panel which governs the apex body FPCCI and the Businessmen Group which reigns the premier and largest Chamber KCCI are on same page and have a similar point of view in dealing with numerous economic and other issues being faced by the business community which would make things easier and prove favorable not only for the business community but also the economy.They said that under the leadership of Mian Anjum Nisar, BMP has been struggling really hard since many years and this was the second consecutive year when they succeeded in overthrowing their opponents. The business & industrial community hopes that the newly elected leadership at FPCCI would continue to take practical steps to improve FPCCI’s functioning and make it a vibrant platform.They were of the opinion that defeating some so-called heavyweight opponents was not an easy task but due to hard work and sincere efforts along with BMG’s full support, BMP candidates outshined in FPCCI’s elections and they all deserve to be appreciated.BMG Leadership and KCCI Office Bearers stressed that the newly elected leadership at FPCCI will have to revisit several policies, further improve FPCCI’s mechanism and devise effective strategies in consultation with all stakeholders to make FPCCI the leading voice of the entire business and industrial community at the national level.Chairman BMG Zubair Motiwala underscored that FPCCI, as a national institution will have to focus on getting the national issues resolved while the newly elected leadership must fulfill their commitments made to the business community during the election campaign. “Every step taken by BMP leadership to improve FPCCI’s performance and in the larger interest of the country will be fully supported by the Karachi Chamber and Businessmen Group as we firmly believe that we all can play the lead role in dealing with the ongoing economic crises if we make collective efforts”, he added.
