LAHORE: The Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry has highly appreciated the Punjab government and law enforcement agencies for accepting LCCI demand to keep markets open during the PSL matches.
In a statement issued the other day, LCCI President Irfan Iqbal Sheikh and Vice President Mian Zahid Jawaid Ahmad said that it is a great moment for the business community as international cricket, trade and economic activities have resumed and would continue parallel.
They said that this decision was not only a big favour to the business community but also to the local and foreigner cricket fans who love to do shopping at Liberty Market and other adjacent markets whenever they come to enjoy the match at Gaddafi Stadium.
The LCCI office-bearers said that new planning by the government and the law enforcement agencies would avoid a massive loss of billions of rupees daily to the trade and economic activities. They said that revival of international cricket in Pakistan is a healthy sign and would highlight the soft image of the country.
The LCCI office-bearers said the business community would cooperate with the government to ensure all necessary security measures during these matches.
