Syed Zulfikar Abbas Bukhari the Minister on Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development (OP&HRD) has launched a web portal. It is called the ‘Naya Pakistan Calling’.
The aim of the web portal is to hire Pakistani expats. The services of Pakistani diasporas community will be utilized in various fields for the development of Pakistan.
The launching ceremony of the portal was held in the Overseas Pakistan Foundation (OPF) Office. The Minister said that this is an opportunity for overseas Pakistanis to share their skills and experiences for the benefit of Pakistan.
The government is determined to capitalize on this web portal by directly involving the diaspora community in strategic decision making. The government wants to give a sense of ownership to the overseas Pakistanis.
Bukhari said that under the leadership of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, the overseas Pakistanis will be given ownership and a sense of identity, which sadly the previous governments never worked upon.
Bukhari further said that the PTI government wants to utilize the skills & expertise of the valuable overseas Pakistanis. Those who left their home country in search for jobs or education expect better treatment when they return back home. Thus the government needs to value these overseas Pakistanis, which is why the web portal is being launched to hire expats.
