ISLAMABAD, Sept 12 (APP): Acting President, Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI) Khurram Sayeed on Friday said the matter of construction of flyover and underpass in Clifton should be settled by arbitration amongst the concerned parties and matter should not be prolonged on stay orders.
Khurram Sayeed further stated that the FPCCI has its headquarters in Federation House, Clifton and recently, the Secretariat of ECO Chamber of Commerce has also shifted to FPCCI from Iran, according to press release issued.
He said that besides many foreign delegations, businessmen, diplomats including ambassadors, commercial counselors and other high profile dignitaries visit Federation house on daily basis and are greatly inconvenienced due to the dug up roads and dusty surroundings because of the incomplete construction.
Khurram Sayeed said this situation is creating great embarrassment for the business community in general and for office bearers and management of FPCCI in particular.
He further said the matter was also discussed with the Sindh provincial government during a meeting in Federation House and requested him to resolve this issue without any further delay.
The Acting President of FPCCI has once again appealed to the Chief Minister Sindh to resolve the issue arbitrarily in the best interest of the residents of Karachi; particularly people living near the construction site.
