As the world continues to transform rapidly into a global village, national governments and international organizations are putting keen interest and attention to issues and challenges of international migration. Pakistan is one of the world’s leading exporters of manpower and labour. Overseas employment is key in combating unemployment, reducing poverty, and remittances sent by migrants are also essential in boosting the economy. However, a significant issue is the low skill level of majority of the migrants who are unskilled or semi-skilled due to illiteracy in the country. Another issue is concentrated trend of migration towards Gulf States which has witnessed significant decline in recent years.
