ISLAMABAD: Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI) President Khalid Iqbal Malik called on the government to offer special incentives to young entrepreneurs for investing in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) Special Economic Zones (SEZs).
He said this would enable them to set up business ventures and industrial units in these zones and play an effective role in the economic development of the country.
Addressing the Youth Business Development Association of Pakistan (YBDAP), Malik said that the government should focus on making new policies for fostering youth entrepreneurship to reduce unemployment and poverty in the country.
He said that if properly groomed and engaged into productive activities, the youth could turn into a huge economic dividend for the country, but left unattended, they could become a burden on the economy.
