During a virtual address to the healthcare professionals, Special Assistant to Prime Minister (SAPM) on Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development, Zulfiqar Bukhari termed it a historical moment for Pakistan after the restoration of exporting labor-power to Kuwait. He asked health professionals that they will serve as the ambassador of Pakistan in the Gulf country.
