KARACHI: Overseas Investors Chamber of Commerce and Industry (OICCI) has elected Haroon Rashid as president of the chamber with effect from July 01, 2020.
His appointment came following a successful tenure of Shazad Dada, who resigned as the President of OICCI after resigning from Standard Chartered Bank and taking over as President of United Bank Limited.
Irfan Siddiqui has been elected as the Vice President of the OICCI from July 1, 2020. Irfan is the founding President/CEO of Meezan Bank Limited.
He initiated the formation of Al-Meezan Investment Bank in 1997, which was converted into a full-fledged scheduled Islamic Commercial Bank in May 2002 – the first ever Islamic Commercial banking license given in Pakistan.
Commenting on his appointment as the President of OICCI, Haroon Rashid was very upbeat and said, “It is really an honor to have been elected as the President of a prestigious organization like the OICCI, which is the largest chamber in the country in terms of economic contribution, contributing over one third of all government levies and is also the largest foreign investor in the country”.
