International Chamber of Commerce Pakistan
The Pakistan National Committee of the International Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1955 and participated actively in ICC affairs. In 1960 the PNC-ICC hosted the International Businessmen’s Conference at Karachi under the auspices of the Commission on Asian and Far Eastern Affairs of the International Chamber of Commerce (CAFEA - ICC).
ICC Pakistan is a consultative body to senior policy makers and provides guidelines and information, which help to facilitate legislation allowing for the development of a conducive and enabling environment for direct investments and international trade. The Founder Chairman of the Pakistan National Committee was Mr. Mohammed Aly Rangoonwala. The Chairman of the Host Committee of the 1960 ICC-CAFEA Conference was Sir Muratib Ali. In 1981 Mr. M. A. Rangoonwala became the Chairman of the ICC itself based in Paris. At the time Mr. Ameen Tareen was the Secretary General of the Pakistan National Committee. Others who chaired the Pakistan National Committee subsequently were Mr. N. M. Uqaili and Mr. A. G. Adamjee. In 1999 when the ICC chapter in Pakistan was revived Mr. Tariq M. A. Rangoonwala was asked to be the Chairman with Mr. Zia Khaleeli as the Secretary General. During its revival process it was registered as per appropriate legal advice as an Association of Persons (AOP) operating under a ICC National Committee Constitution. The Pakistan National Committee is a non-profit organization.
