Eid Festival Bazaars to be organized at all markets from next year: ICCI

ISLAMABAD, APR 15 /DNA/ – Irfan Nawaz Memon, Deputy Commissioner, Islamabad has said that the business community is the key player in the economic development of the country and that he would initiate all the necessary steps to facilitate it.  He said this while addressing the closing ceremony of Eid Festival Bazaar on Chand Raat at Abpara market as Chief Guest.

It is worth mentioning that the ICCI in collaboration with the Traders Welfare Associations organized Eid Festivals at five different markets of the capital to enable the customers to buy articles of their choice at affordable price. The Deputy Commissioner appreciated the ICCI and the Traders Welfare Associations for organizing Eid Festival Bazaars for the benefit of the consumers.

Ahsan Zafar Bakhtawari, President, Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI) said that the Aabpara Market is the oldest market of Islamabad and is playing central role in improving the economy by promoting trade activities and that ICCI would continue to work with relevant government departments to resolve the issues of the business community.

He also impressed upon the Capital Development Authority to focus on the beautification of the market by removing encroachments and extending maximum possible facilities to the traders for a suitable atmosphere for their businesses. He said that the Office Bearers of Market Associations are playing an important role in solving the problems of the traders by sacrificing their own businesses and family responsibilities, which is highly laudable.
