It’s a way to bring back our valuable talent so that they use their skills and energy for the betterment of their own country.
After the citizen portal catering to the needs of local residents, this new portal will provide the same opportunity to overseas Pakistanis. Government is also focusing on overseas Pakistanis as they are a valuable asset to our country with their specialties and their drive to contribute to the economy of Pakistan.
One of the major objectives of this calling portal is to make youth capable/skilled to drive the nation. It also provides a way to fill the gap between expats and government thus a bridge of communication between the government and other people throughout the world. Experienced, skilled and potential candidates can submit their CV’s at the web portal of Naya Pakistan so that selected candidates can help and take part in the strategic decision in the federal as well as in provincial level.
This idea basically comes from China. As China, when started themselves towards development and prosperity 40 years ago, they called their overseas people so that they come back to their country and help it.
