ISLAMABAD: Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said on Saturday the government would soon launch property projects for overseas Pakistanis to provide them investment opportunities with peace of mind.

Overseas Pakistanis stand behind Pakistan to make it economically strong, he said in an interview with Gulf News.

“We are bringing completely a new concept of overseas Pakistanis’ investment in the country to keep them safe from any fake or fraudulent real estate schemes. We have already acquired land in Islamabad and are in the process of getting more land in Karachi, Lahore and other major cities for Pakistanis living abroad.

“The prime minister will soon unveil new dedicated investment schemes for Pakistanis living abroad,” the minister said.

He said the government had given clear instructions to all diplomats of Pakistan missions abroad that they would remain on jobs only if overseas Pakistanis were satisfied with their work.
