ISLAMABAD: Speaker National Assembly Asad Qaiser has constituted a committee comprising the members of the National Assembly from both treasury and opposition benches to facilitate the repatriation of the stranded Pakistanis in different parts of the world.
This initiative of the speaker National Assembly has been lauded by members on both sides of the aisle.
The establishment of the committee is a result of the constant demand of the members of the National Assembly who have been facing pressure from their constituents who are expatriates and stranded abroad.
According to a statement issued by the National Assembly Secretariat on Friday, the main objective of the Committee was to coordinate with the ministries of Foreign Affairs as well as Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development for facilitating and ensuring smooth return of the Pakistani expatriates through the respective missions of Pakistan in those countries.
Besides, the committee will also personally get in touch with the overseas Pakistanis who are exposed to vulnerabilities due to expiry of their job contracts, and other such problems, so that their grievances could be addressed through relevant forums.
The committee will be assisted by the experienced officials of the National Assembly Secretariat for smooth conduct of its assignments.
