Ms Naheed Memon, Chairperson Sindh Board of Investment (SBI) visits the OICCI

The Chairperson Sindh Board of Investment Ms Naheed Memon visited the OICCI on January 26, 2018 for an interactive session with members. She was welcomed by the OICCI President Khalid Mansoor and CE/Secretary General M. Abdul Aleem. A number of member companies CEOs and senior representatives also attended the session.

The OICCI President shared with the participants that three weeks ago during their visit to Chief Minister Sindh, Ms Naheed Memon was also present and during the meeting she had agreed to visit the OICCI to inform members about the ongoing initiatives in the Special Economic Zones (SEZs) in Sindh.

Ms Naheed Memon in her presentation updated the participants regarding developments of the first three SEZs in Sindh and the ongoing work for additional two CPEC related SEZs in Sindh. She also explained in detail on work being done on infrastructure, policy incentives, marketing programs and SEZ authority capacity to set up more SEZs in the province.

She also briefed members on the ongoing negotiations with the Chinese government on CPEC related SEZs and also clarified certain misconceptions on the issue of preferential status to Chinese businesses, since whatever benefits are available/will be given to Chinese businesses will also be valid for all other projects from whichever country it comes, including Pakistani business entities.

In the Q&A session members queries relating to SEZs were further clarified by Ms. Memon.
