Membership renewal campaign of Faisalabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry (FCCI) was heading satisfactorily and much better results would be achieved this year as compared to the previous one, said Dr Sajjad Arshad Senior Vice President FCCI. Chairing a meeting of the membership renewal committee, he expressed satisfaction over the pace of renewal and appreciated the efforts of the concerned members and staff. Quoting the previous meeting of the renewal committee, he said the strategy adopted in it yielded positive results and hopefully the set target would be achieved very soon.

FCCI former president Rana Sikandar Azam said that his wife was suffering from cancer but he was here to fulfill his obligations. He mentioned the importance of membership growth and renewal committees and said that he held around 27-28 meetings of each committee to motivate members to achieve the given targets. He said that last year on this day 4164 members, out of total 7039, had renewed their membership while this year, we have up till now achieved the target of 54%.
