The first batch of 221 Pakistani medical professionals is all set to leave for Kuwait on Thursday. This batch is part of around 600 Pakistani doctors, nurses and technicians who would begin work in Kuwait after more than a decade under the health agreement signed between the two countries in July to build closer ties.

Special Assistant to the Prime Minister (SAPM) on Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development Sayed Zulfikar Abbas Bukhari on Wednesday said that the revival of work abroad programmes in Kuwait is “a historic moment for Pakistan as not a single worker had been sent to the Gulf country during the last 13 years”.
