Uphold highest values, standards: Bukhari
KUWAIT CITY, Oct 22: Pakistan will send 600 medical professionals to Kuwait as per the agreement signed by the two countries in July, reports Al-Anba daily. A press statement issued by the Ministry of Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resources Development confirmed that 221 medical professionals – doctors, nurses and technicians – arrived in Kuwait on Thursday, followed by the second batch of 200 medical professionals.
In a virtual speech, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister (SAPM) on Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development Syed ZulfiBukhari urged these medical professionals to uphold the highest values and standards of professionalism as they will be the ambassadors of Pakistan to Kuwait. “It will be you, who will pave the way for other Pakistanis aspiring to seek jobs in Kuwait,” Bukhari added.
He affirmed Pakistan is fully committed to contribute to the development of Kuwait, and that it will provide skilled workforce in multiple sectors as per the 2035 vision. “The revival of workforce export to Kuwait is a historic moment for Pakistan as not even a single worker was sent to the Gulf country during the last 13 years,” said the SAPM; adding that Kuwait had planned to hire the services of over 1,000 Pakistani healthcare professionals, including doctors, paramedics and nurses.
The SAPM pointed out Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has international stature and clout, due to which several countries are keen on hiring Pakistani manpower.
