Building Greater Pakistan: Leading CEOs participate in the Eighteen CEO Summit Asia 2019
CEO Club Pakistan and the Management House jointly organized the ‘EIGHTEEN CEO Summit Asia 2019’, Pakistan’s most anticipated corporate event. The conference was attended by Mr. Tarek Hamdy – CEO, EIGHTEEN and a number of other distinguished professionals who delivered talks on the theme – ‘Building Greater Pakistan’.
The theme ‘Building Greater Pakistan’ is aimed at involving participants in important discussions around finding ways to contribute to Pakistan’s growth in the business sector, strengthening the economy and addressing the ever-pressing issue of climate change by promoting environmentally-safe practices.
Tarek Hamdy, CEO, EIGHTEEN said, “The Eighteen CEO Summit is a wonderful platform for sharing business experiences and exchanging ideas. Eighteen, as a project of international standards, is a step towards building a greater Pakistan by redefining the lifestyle of people. Our investment in the country, inclusion of local stakeholders, and creation of employment opportunities will contribute to the national economy in a major way”
He further discussed how Eighteen will ensure an environmental-friendly lifestyle for its residents, adding “We are building on only 16 percent of the land, including residential and commercial, in order to preserve the fauna of the landscape. We are adopting new water solutions keeping in view the existing water crisis and will also be generating our own power. Eighteen has adopted lean construction techniques that ensure minimal wastage, and has also provided for smart home solutions rendering power efficiency. These measures stand in line with our “Go Green” policies and are tailored towards preserving and protecting the environment”
The first phase of development is set to be completed in December 2020. Mr. Hamdy claimed that the government has been helpful towards the growth of the real estate project but further facilitation is required.
