The Research & Development department of KCCI was re-initiated in February’13 under the visionary leadership of (Late) Mr. Siraj Kassam Teli, Chairman Businessmen Group (BMG) and Former President KCCI, whose dynamic guidance turned this vision into a reality. Since then, the revamped R&D dept has been working diligently to prepare quality research and serving the needs of the business community. The department provides a wide range of economic and business information to members of KCCI and other relevant persons/departments so that they remain abreast of ongoing business related activities at domestic and international levels. Such information has been of great benefit to the KCCI members, businessmen, politicians, govt. functionaries and foreign diplomats.
