We are a group of individuals who believe in the potential of women entrepreneurs in Pakistan. After many years of working in this field, we have become acutely aware of the need for a separate Chamber of Commerce and industry, which is solely dedicated to promoting the cause of women in business. To this end, we are proud to announce the establishment of WCCI. The chamber can also be looked upon as an advocacy group for dealing with issues of economic empowerment of women.
