On poverty alleviation, the Prime Minister said China has achieved in the last thirty years which no country could achieve so far and that is lifting 700 million people out of poverty. He said Pakistan will follow the model to alleviate poverty from the society by taking similar steps.

Referring to overseas Pakistanis, the Prime Minister said they are our great asset and have always responded to a call to the nation.

He said our government is making efforts to lure back Pakistani skilled workers and businessmen in order for them to play an active role in the national development. He said we want Pakistani businessmen to first invest in Pakistan.

He said our government has a priority to make it easier for overseas Pakistanis to make the transition back to country.
