ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry, in collaboration with the Pakistan Stock Exchange, organised an awareness programme to educate potential investors about the dynamics and workings of the stock exchange.
The programme sought to educate the business community about potential opportunities to raise money from the capital market.
It was highlighted that the capital market was an important source to mobilize idle savings from the economy. The business community was also apprised of the operational, strategic and regulatory developments taking place at PSX.
Speaking at the occasion, ICCI President Ahmed Hassan Moughal said that the capital markets were playing a crucial role in mobilizing domestic resources in order to channelize them towards productive activities.
He stressed that PSX should come up with more attractive packages for small and medium enterprises so as to facilitate their development.
The ICCI president said although PSX has developed a specialized SME Board for listing and trading of SMEs shares, it should also create maximum awareness about this facility so that SMEs could raise capital from the market to fund their growth and expansion needs.
