President's Message

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). Indeed, realization of constitutional rights will help usher into era of social and economic prosperity through utilization of abundant natural resources for industrial development for the ultimate benefit of its inhabitants and by attracting invaluable foreign investment.

SCCI while keeping its tradition alive is holding Investment Opportunities Conference (IOC) for drawing attention of investors for exploitation of sectors of tourism, hydel (micro/small hydel projects with 30,000 MW potential)/solar/wind energy, mineral (marble, granite, chromite, copper etc.), gemstones (emerald, topaz, tourmaline etc.), honey (20 kinds), agri-business (tobacco, tea, olive, veggies, fruits, dates, fresh/dry fruits, medicinal plants etc.), livestock (goats, sheep, calf, birds, ostrich, poultry, fishery etc.) etc. to overcome losses of business community incurred during war against terror, disasters, refugee influx and IDPs for the last 40-years.
