Younus Dagha, a former federal secretary for water and power, commerce, and finance, has been appointed chairman of the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry’s (FPCCI) newly formed policy and research board.
“Dagha is one of Pakistan’s most experienced and celebrated civil servants, with a remarkable grasp on the country’s economy and key sectors,” says the FPCCI said in a statement.
The FPCCI’s president established a policy and research board made up of top-level fiscal, financial, trade, and industry experts. The FPCCI is Pakistan’s apex representative body for companies, industry, and trade. The plan was unanimously accepted by the FPCCI executive committee on April 13th.
FPCCI’s policy and research board is charged with providing research-based expert guidance for policy advice and advocacy, as well as formalising the business community’s input on foreign trade, tariff and taxation policies, macroeconomic problems, regulatory rules, access to finance, and ease of doing business initiatives involving 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 analysis board will also provide trade organisations around the country with data and knowledge to assist their representatives in making informed business decisions and identifying opportunities. In order to achieve these goals, the board will restructure and update FPCCI’s policy and research facilities.
