ISLAMABAD, Feb 11 (APP):Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development, Syed Zulfikar Bukhari Monday proposed the world leaders to evolve a joint mechanism for overseas workers’ rights protection at international level.
He, during a panel discussion – Planning for Next Generation of Careers – held on the second day of World Government Summit in Dubai, said we had to devise a combined strategy for our overseas manpower’s safety and legal aid so that they could spend their life abroad accordingly, a message received here from Dubai said.

During the discussion, Zulfi said the demand of skilled manpower had gradually risen across the world and Pakistan was about to finalize a framework for exporting its trained workforce to various countries. For this purpose, we had taken private sector on board too, he added.
