It gives me great pleasure that our Democratic Government is determined to fight challenges like terrorism and energy crisis and provide maximum relief to the common man. The Government is sincerely making efforts to come up to the expectations of the nation, who gave them the mandate to resolve their problems.
After assuming the charge as Federal Minister for Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development, it was my first priority to ensure merit and transparency in the Ministry and its attached departments. This Ministry has the mandate to generate employment opportunities abroad and to look after the welfare of the dependents of the overseas Pakistanis and the local employees. Organizations like, Overseas Pakistanis Foundation (OPF), Workers Welfare Fund (WWF), Employees Old-age Benefit Institution (EOBI), Bureau of Emigration & Overseas Employment (BE&OE) and Overseas Employment Corporation (OEC) have been directed to enhance their efforts to increase manpower export and properly look after the welfare of the local employees and the dependents of the overseas Pakistani community.
We are facing lot of challenges, in economic and energy sectors and flood crisis etc and sincerely hope that the government under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif will soon overcome these problems.
I, as the Federal Minister of Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development, assure my best cooperation and help for employees, businessmen and overseas Pakistanis as they are the backbone of Pakistan and are injecting billions of dollars in our economy.
I believe that the valiant people of Pakistan have the will to work together and take the country out of the present crisis and make it a strong welfare state.
