Pakistani overseas to have a digital banking service, says Zulfi Bukhari
Special Assistant to the Prime Minister of Overseas Pakistan and Human Resources Development Sayed Zulfiqar Bukhari declared on Sunday that the government has agreed to offer a wireless banking service to overseas Pakistanis.”At a period when Pakistanis would be able to make direct payments and investments in the world,” the Prime Minister’s aide said, adding that the move would offer a great investment opportunity for the Pakistani community residing abroad.
That digital banking has been a long-standing demand of the Pakistani diaspora and that the Pakistani overseas group wants to become a significant stakeholder in the national development of the country. He said that the strategy was planned in line with the dream of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
Yet another move to encourage overseas Pakistanis, the federal government agreed yet June to provide jobs for overseas Pakistanis unemployed and set up a special platform to encourage unemployed returning citizens. Bukhari shared the registration connection on Twitter, stating that through the website, returning Pakistanis will be able to apply for re-employment abroad, accredited training and also register for government financial assistance.
It is important to remember that thousands of Pakistanis operating abroad have returned home unemployed owing to the coronavirus pandemic. Registration has also started on the Overseas Jobs Cooperation website for Dismissed Overseas Pakistanis.
