This Chamber Presidents' Conference is the first of its kind and FCCISL is determined to have this conference as often as possible. He said that these Regional and District Chambers in turn represent more than 4000 business enterprises many of which are micro, small and medium level enterprises which form the backbone of the economy of the country and they play a vital role in facilitating the growth of the sector.

At the end of the Presidents' Conference, a consensus was reached and the final findings were documented and signed by all the Chamber Presidents and issued as a declaration and now this Chamber Presidents' final declaration has been forwarded to the Ministry of Finance as the proposals of the FCCISL.
