Blessing for SMEs
The government has started a project to financially assist the war affected people of FATA. Grant cheques worth Rs.41 million were distributed among 54 terrorism affected entrepreneurs of FATA under the Economic Revitalization of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and FATA project at the Tribal Areas Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Peshawar.
The project has been termed as “a blessing for the small and medium enterprises (SMEs) of the tribal areas” by leading businessmen of the province. The purpose of the ERKF is the revival of small and medium enterprises affected by terrorism and floods. The measure is likely to bring improvement in the socio-economic conditions of the people of the region.
