President Dr Arif Alvi has called upon the Pakistani diasporas in North America and Europe to create linkages with relevant institutions, departments and private sectors for exchange of technology and expertise with Pakistan to catalyse progress and development here.                                          

He was talking to President of the Pakistani Descent Physician Society, Dr Asif Syed, who called on him in Islamabad on Monday.        

The President said the government is trying to resolve the economic issues faced by the nation, especially ensuring the availability of urea and meeting the energy needs of the population.

He commended the Pakistani-Descent Physicians Society and its welfare activities during the Covid-19 pandemic and the recent floods in Pakistan.           

Dr Arif Alvi said the Society can play an active role in bringing technological advances in the health sector of Pakistan to enable our young physicians to remain competitive on the world stage.

The Pakistani-Descent Physicians Society is a medical non-profit organization with a member base of 600 plus physicians from Illinois, Michigan, Indiana and Wisconsin. 

It focuses on facilitating healthcare services, community outreach, policy, advocacy and legislation in the United States and in Pakistan and is currently supporting the flood relief efforts in the country.
