Anisa Zeb urges mutual coordination among deptt: and stakeholders for business friendly environment

Peshawar: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Minister for Minerals Development and Labour, Anisa Zeb Tahirkheli has urged the Labour Department and its all stakeholders to enhance mutual coordination in order to maintain business friendly environment.

She said the reforms initiatives were being taken to ensure judicial distribution of responsibilities and rights. All the stakeholders should also have to play their respective role in this regard.

These views she expressed while talking to a joint delegation of Labour Department, Philip Morris Company and International Union of Food Workers at Civil Secretariat here on Thursday.

On the occasion, ongoing issues and matters relating to labour department particularly business environment, issues being faced by attached departments and companies, welfare of workers and way forward came under the discussion.

Anisa Zeb while talking on the occasion said the government was taking solid steps to put the labour and its attached department on modern lines. But the role of stakeholders was also important in this regard.

She made it clear that the compromise would not be made on the welfare of workers and their families. However, she said the measures were also being taken in the interest of stakeholders (companies and institutions).

The Minister stated the rule of law was the only solution for conflict situations, violation of which creates hurdles in the way of smooth functioning of any department.

She said the minor issues should be resolved through mutual consultation in order to continue the progress. Rules and regulation should be preferred in making decisions rather than the personal liking and disliking, she concluded.
