ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI) has demanded that the incoming government should give top priority to fixing the economy as the current weak position was leading the country towards a bleak economic outlook. ICCI office bearers lamented that the currency has depreciated against the dollar, saying that it needs immediate attention. They added that the development and growth of all sectors was directly linked with a strong economy, but the current economic indicators showed that Pakistan’s economy was in dire straits. They urged the upcoming government to form a think tank comprising of economic experts and business leaders that would focus on devising a comprehensive strategy to turn around the economy.
