He assured the newly elected office bearers that ICCI would fully cooperate with the association in its endeavours aimed at the development of the market and bringing it at par with well-developed markets of the region.
In his welcome address, Muhammad Hussain thanked ICCI’ s delegation for visiting their market to congratulate the newly elected office bearers, which he said was a source of encouragement for them.
Highlighting the key issues of super-market, he said there was no filtration plant in the market due to which the traders and residents of the area are deprived of clean drinking water.

He assured that the association would fully support the ICCI in its efforts for resolving key issues of the local business community.
