The President emphasized the need for effective coordination with the  private organizations working in the area of social welfare to broaden  the outreach of these programmes.

Appreciating the work of National Socio-economic Registry for keeping  latest database, he said that collection and digitalization of data was of  paramount significance for the success and effective implementation of  these programs.
