Ensure a Greater Stake for Overseas Pakistanis
Imran Khan and his team from PTI (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf) promised us:
PTI values the patriotic spirit of overseas Pakistanis and will ensure access to citizen rights and an improved set of infrastructure and services offered by Pakistani embassies.
Overseas Pakistanis are one of our biggest asset, who have consistently been denied access to their citizens’ rights and to the opportunity to contribute to Pakistan’s economy due to inefficient and incomplete processes along with poor quality infrastructure and services by previous governments.
We will ensure voting rights for overseas Pakistanis.
We will champion development of financial instruments to create attractive investment opportunities for Overseas Pakistanis.
We will strengthen Pakistani embassies to provide emergency relief and other support to citizens facing hardship in case of any tragedy.
We will ensure Overseas Pakistanis are treated with dignity and respect at all entry points into the country.
We will create a virtual investment desk in key embassies which will serve as the conduit for opportunities with local business councils, chambers of commerce and key government institutions.
We will ensure that like other citizens of Pakistan, overseas Pakistanis have security of titling.
We will provide consular and legal services to all Pakistanis jailed abroad. We make best efforts to bring prisoners like Dr. Afia Siddiqui and others back to Pakistan.
