Muhammad Ahmed Waheed, President, Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI) has called upon the relevant authorities to issue notification for opening of all businesses related with construction industry including steel re-rolling and marble sectors.

In a statement Thursday, he said that on the instructions of Coordination Committee and Prime Minister of Pakistan, district administration had issued notification for opening of construction industry, but steel re-rolling, marble and some other industries were not covered in the said notification, which has created confusion in the businessmen of construction sector.

Ahmed Waheed said that other provinces have notified opening of all construction related businesses and stressed that new notification for Islamabad should be issued to remove the prevailing confusion. He said that if all businesses related with construction industry were not opened, there would be no benefit of opening construction industry as many materials and items used in construction would not be available in the market.

The ICCI President said that due to lockdown, all businesses have already suffered great loss. However, PM’s announcement to open some industries including construction had given a new hope to the depressed business community.  They said that ICCI has already issued instructions to traders and industrialists to fully abide by the SOPs issued by the local administration for opening of business activities. They urged that SOPs should be issued and all businesses allied with construction industry should be allowed to open so that jobless workers could get employment that would also reduce the difficulties of many families.
