Speaking at the occasion, Sardar Yasir Ilyas Khan said that many businesses from trade and industry were operating in the federal capital since long and CDA has now started to seal shops in some areas due to non-conforming use, but this action was disrupting the business activities.
He said that CDA has also issued notices to some industries for non-conforming use while these industries were promoting exports and providing jobs to thousands of workers.
He emphasized that instead of taking direct action in markets and industrial areas, CDA should always take ICCI on board so that amicable solutions of such issues could be found with joint efforts.
ICCI President said that due to Covid-19 pandemic, our economy was already facing great problems and this situation demanded that every business related institution including CDA should facilitate ease of doing business instead of taking measures that would cause further contraction in business activities.
