While speaking on the occasion, OICCI CE/secretary general M Abdul Aleem said, “OICCI members not only bring investment, breakthrough technologies, global business practices and knowhow to Pakistan, but are also leading the social and climate agenda through thought leadership.”

Shedding light on the sprint session, Pakistan Business Council CEO Ehsan Malik said, “Leading businesses in the private sector can use this platform for advocacy and capacity building to enable the industry and the financial sector to take actionable steps and learn from each other.”
