‘Naya Pakistan Calling’ launched to hire Pakistani expats’ services
ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development Syed Zulfikar Abbas Bukhari on Wednesday launched a web portal named ‘Naya Pakistan Calling’ to hire services of Pakistanis working abroad for national development.
Addressing the launching ceremony of the portal at the Overseas Pakistan Foundation office, he said the portal is aimed to provide a platform where expats can share their credentials.
He termed the initiative ‘reversal’ of brain drain, saying expats would be given ownership here under dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
Mr Bukhari said the government has resolved to engage overseas Pakistanis in strategic decision to give them a sense of ownership in their own country. They didn’t figure on priority list of previous governments, he added.
“We focused on maximum utilization of this valuable asset, who left their homes and children behind expecting better treatment on coming back in return to their huge contribution for the country’s economic growth,” he said.
He also announced the opening of an ownership cell in the Ministry by month-end to remove their sense of deprivation developed due to non-productive policies of the past regimes.
