The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL - Staff Re­port

The Com­pe­ti­tion Com­mis­sion of Pak­istan (CCP) held a sem­i­nar at the Multan Cham­ber of Com­merce & In­dus­try (BCCI) that also marked the con­clu­sion of the Na­tional Road Show on Com­pe­ti­tion Law.

As part of the Na­tional Road Show in­au­gu­rated on 4th De­cem­ber 2015 in Is­lam­abad, CCP teams headed by the Chair­per­son Vadiyya Khalil and Mem­bers Shahzad An­sar and Ikram Ul Haque Qureshi vis­ited 22 cities of the four provinces and suc­cess­fully held sem­i­nars at the Cham­bers of Com­merce & In­dus­try and lead­ing Trade As­so­ci­a­tions to cre­ate aware­ness and fa­mil­iari­sa­tion of the Com­pe­ti­tion Law. With the sup­port of the busi­ness com­mu­nity, im­por­tant ob­jec­tives of the Road Show have been achieved, such as the ap­point­ment of fo­cal per­sons by the Cham­bers of Com­merce who will work as a cen­tral point of com­mu­ni­ca­tion and li­ai­son be­tween CCP and the busi­ness com­mu­nity.

The par­tic­i­pants of th­ese sem­i­nars in­cluded busi­ness­men rang­ing from the small and medium en­ter­prises to large and small cor­po­rate firms, na­tional com­pa­nies and multi­na­tional cor­po­ra­tions. The com­pe­ti­tion is­sues high­lighted at the sem­i­nars have been noted down by CCP for fur­ther ac­tion where ap­pli­ca­ble.

The sem­i­nar at Multan Cham­ber was at­tended by Kh­waja Muham­mad Yousaf, for­mer Pres­i­dent MCCI, CCP Mem­bers Shahzad An­sar, Ikram Ul Haque Qureshi, CCP Di­rec­tors As­fand­yar Khat­tak, Syed Umair Javed, Ikram Ul Haque, se­nior mem­bers of the Ex­ec­u­tive Com­mit­tee of MCCI and mem­bers of the cham­ber in large num­ber.

In his wel­come

ad­dress, Kh­waja Muham­mad Yousaf said the econ­omy needs a com­pet­i­tive busi­ness en­vi­ron­ment that en­sures in­vestors' con­fi­dence and con­ducive con­di­tions for in­no­va­tion and growth. He termed the role of CCP cru­cial for pro­tect­ing con­sumers' rights and a com­pet­i­tive econ­omy while urg­ing the busi­ness­men to in­crease their knowl­edge of the Com­pe­ti­tion Law. He as­sured MCCI's sup­port to CCP in cre­at­ing aware­ness of the law and im­prov­ing its com­pli­ance.

Ad­dress­ing the par­tic­i­pants, CCP Mem­ber Shahzad An­sar said that CCP has achieved the ob­jec­tives of the Road Show on Com­pe­ti­tion Law and the credit of the suc­cess equally goes to the busi­ness com­mu­nity. The Road Show will go a long way in cre­at­ing aware­ness, im­prov­ing un­der­stand­ing of the Law and cre­at­ing a bet­ter com­pli­ant busi­ness en­vi­ron­ment, he said and added that CCP will con­tinue tak­ing ad­vo­cacy ini­tia­tives with the sup­port of the busi­ness com­mu­nity.
