ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday said his government was going to announce a special package of incentives for overseas Pakistanis in a bid to encourage them to send remittances through banking channels.
Imran Khan made the announcement in a series of tweets after an ‘extensive meeting’ on issues of overseas Pakistanis.
“InshaAllah by removing these hindrances we will be able to increase remittance flows from $20 billion to at least $30 billion and perhaps even $40 billion through banking channels,” he said.
“We are also moving to remove hassles Overseas Pakistanis confront at immigration when they come to Pakistan. Our Missions abroad have also been directed to look after and deal effectively with the concerns of our Overseas Pakistanis.”
Our govt is also going to ensure protection for the Overseas Pakistanis’ properties and land especially from land mafias. https://t.co/lSVA1RC3Rx
