ISLAMABAD ( Web  News )  

Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry  has always worked for the industry and academia linkages and would continue to do so in future as well for the betterment of the youth and for the economic wellbeing of the country.

This has been stated by President Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry Ahsan Zafar Bakhtawari while addressing as chief guest at the closing ceremony of 1st RWU- IDEA FEST-24, an inter-Universities competition held at Rawalpindi Women University on Tuesday.

He emphasized that entrepreneurs can play a vital role in the development by taking a moderate amount of risk that entrepreneurship has its importance in the corporate sector as well as social sector. No doubt, entrepreneurship is profit generating but yet responsible to give back to the society, and develop civic sense and character building characteristics.

He lauded the initiative of the Vice Chancellor  and expressed the hope that it will go a long way in preparing useful entrepreneurs for the country who will not only be able to turn up successful businesspersons  to earn their own livelihood honorably but would also help the country for strengthening of its economy.

She expressed her gratitude to the ICCI for extending every help to the University for the Promotion of entrepreneurship.

Former President ICCI and Secretary General United Business Group Zafar Bakhtawari said that women empowerment is much needed for the development of the country, therefore they should come forward and demonstrate their skills and emerge as successful businesspersons.
