He requested for greater cooperation from the business community to make the security system more efficient.
In his welcome address, Yassar Sakhi Butt, President, Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry said that rising acts of terrorism were damaging business activities and discouraging investment, therefore, police should take measures to curb this trend.
ICCI President said that we are passing through a phase of time in which security has become an important issue and especially in the Capital city it has to be handled even more professionally. He said that Capital Police should use modern technology because the security situation as well as theft and car snatching were on the rise.
Butt said that there should be greater interaction between the local community and police force so that the level of cooperation could be improved. He said that diplomatic activity has decreased in our main markets, therefore measures should be taken to ensure their safety which would provide benefit to the traders and business community as well as benefiting the economy.
He also called for removing of unnecessary pickets and barriers which were put on different points in all around the city and causing immense problem for the commuters.
