ISLAMABAD: Briefing a delegation of the Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI), Capital Development Authority (CDA) Chairman Amir Ali Ahmed announced various uplift schemes to develop markets, and restore infrastructure including carpeting of roads, repair footpaths and street lights.
ICCI Senior Vice President Tahir Abbasi, Vice President Saifur Rahman Khan and other concerned officials were a part of the delegation, which was led by ICCI President Ahmed Waheed.
Chairman CDA assured the delegation that the longstanding issues faced by the business community and shoppers will be addressed by launching uplift schemes in the markets of the federal capital soon.
Earlier, due to unavailability of funds, the authority had been unable to develop the market places, which caused the conditions of market places to deteriorate.
In addition, ICCI in collaboration with Additional Deputy Commissioner Waseem Ahmed will further work on ICCI’s ‘Go Green Islamabad’ campaign. To plant a million trees in the federal capital during 2020, Islamabad Capital Territory Administration (ICTA) and the CDA will fully cooperate with the chamber in this campaign, announced ICTA Chief Commissioner.
Along with identifying various sites for plantation drives, the authorities will involve local markets, schools and other organisations to make Islamabad greener.
