KARACHI: The Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI) has appointed Younus Dagha, a former federal secretary for water and power, commerce and finance as the chairman of its newly-formed policy and research board.

The president of the FPCCI formed a policy & research board comprising of top-level economic, business, trade, and industry experts. FPCCI is the apex representative body of the business, industry, and trade community of Pakistan. On 13 of April, the executive committee of FPCCI approved the proposal unanimously.

The policy and research board of FPCCI is mandated to provide research-based expert input for policy advice and advocacy, formalise business community’s inputs on international trade, tariff and taxation policies, macroeconomic issues, regulatory laws, access to finance and ease of doing business initiatives related to various government ministries and institutions.

FPCCI president posed his absolute confidence in Dagha to revolutionise the policy and research functions at FPCCI.

The policy and research board will also provide access to data and information to the trade organisations throughout the country to help their members take informed business decisions and identify opportunities. To achieve such objectives, the board will also restructure and upgrade the policy and research facilities at FPCCI.
