FAISALABAD: Faisalabad Women Chamber and industry has main focus to attract foreign direct investment for women-led businesses for joint ventures, technology transfer, buy-back arrangements, said Mrs. Nighat Shahid, President FWCCI.

She said that she informed Honorable President that we have made hard efforts to motivate young female graduates for new business start ups to avail cheap finance of SBP but participating banks did not fully facilitate to the women. She requested that participating banks need to be advised to extend full cooperation and assistance for loan to women applicants and make required documentation easier as well as increasing the female staff at the banks.

She said that since technical jobs require updated trainings, it is an opportunity to provide women with technical know-how and skills to reduce the gender education gap leading to an increase in the pool of medium to highly-skilled workforce. She said that she has already focused on this and various training courses as digital marketing, web development, computer application mobile repairing etc were launched by the FWCCI.
