President's MessageIt’s a matter of great pleasure and satisfaction that SCCI is achieving its objective of serving and protecting rights of the business community of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for its economic prosperity.

SCCI recently have successfully convinced Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and federal governments for provision of electricity to KP industries on wheeling charges, gas supply on priority to KP consumers under article-158 of the constitution, 24/7 opening of Torkham border, withdrawal of with-holding tax on filers and compensation package for losses due to Bus Rapid Transit (BRT).
