Islamabad: Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry has always worked for the industry and academia linkages and would continue to do so in future as well for the betterment of the youth and for the economic wellbeing of the country, says a press release.

This has been stated by President Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry Ahsan Zafar Bakhtawari while addressing as chief guest at the closing ceremony of 1st RWU- IDEA FEST-24, an inter-Universities competition held at Rawalpindi Women University on Tuesday.

He emphasized that entrepreneurs can play a vital role in the development by taking moderate amount of risk that entrepreneurship has its importance in corporate sector as well as social sector. No doubt, entrepreneurship is profit generating but yet responsible to give back to the society, and develop civic sense and character building characteristics. He lauded the initiative of Vice Chancellor and expressed the hope that it will go a long way in preparing useful entrepreneurs for the country who will not only be able to turn up successful businesspersons to earn their own livelihood honorably but would also help the country for strengthening of its economy.

Dr. Anila Kamal, Vice Chancellor Women University, in her keynote address, encapsulating the essence of the RWU-1: IDEA FEST-2024 by emphasising the pivotal role education plays in reshaping societal norms, said that the University is focusing on the skill development of the students to enable them to become job providers instead of job seekers after the completion of their education.
