PESHAWAR: Khy­berPakhtunkhwa Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try (KPCCI) and USAID have pre­pared a vi­sion doc­u­ment for de­vel­op­ing a well di­ver­si­fied in­dus­trial and man­u­fac­tur­ing base in KP which is not only ex­port ori­ented but also ben­e­fi­cial for do­mes­tic con­sumers and sup­port­ing em­ploy­ment gen­er­a­tion.

The vi­sion doc­u­ment was pre­pared af­ter a de­tailed dis­cus­sion among the of­fi­cials of USAID, Pro­vin­cial govern­ment and busi­ness com­mu­nity of the prov­ince here at KPCCI on Wed­nes­day. Chair­man In­dus­trial Work­ing Group, Nau­man Wazir presided the ses­sion while pres­i­dent KPCCI, Us­man Bilour, Pro­vin­cial Sec­re­tary In­dus­try and lead­ing in­dus­tri­al­ists of the prov­ince were present on the oc­ca­sion.

Dur­ing the meet­ing, de­tailed dis­cus­sion was held on po­ten­tial ar­eas of in­dus­tri­al­iza­tion in Khy­berPakhtunkhwa and mea­sures for re­mov­ing the hin­drances in pro­mo­tion of com­mer­cial ac­tiv­i­ties in the prov­ince.

Three work­ing groups was also formed in the ses­sion which held de­tailed dis­cus­sions on rel­e­vant sub­jects and pre­pared sug­ges­tions for in­cor­po­rat­ing into the vi­sion. In­puts were also sought from in­dus­tri­al­ists in their spe­cial­ized sub­jects and pro­pos­als were noted for nec­es­sary ac­tion.

Brief­ing the par­tic­i­pants, Chair­man In­dus­trial Work­ing Group, Nau­man Wazir said the ob­jec­tive be­hind pre­par­ing the vi­sion is to de­velop in­dus­tries in the prov­ince so that jobs are cre­ated and econ­omy is sta­bi­lized. He said the prov­ince has suf­fered a lot due to lo­ca­tional dis­ad­van­tage and mil­i­tancy.

It is the need of the hour to chalk out a com­pre­hen­sive and well di­ver­si­fied in­dus­trial and pro­duc­tion base for mak­ing the prov­ince pros­per­ous through en­hanc­ing com­mer­cial ac­tiv­i­ties and cre­at­ing jobs.

Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, Pres­i­dent KPCCI, Us­man Bilour stressed for adopt­ing mea­sures on war foot­ing ba­sis to ex­pe­dite the pace of in­dus­trial devel­op­ment in Khy­ber Pakhtunkhwa prov­ince. -App
