  • The remittances from EU are very nominal and I think a big number of Pakistanis are living in EU but low remittance is because of the majority Pakistanis have permanently settled there. That is why they send very little amount to Pakistan. The people who are living in Saudi and UAE that is actual majority are labor type of people or not permanently settled there and the total amount they send to Pakistan, it is the reason the remittances of saudi and UAE are on top…

  • Expatriates send their money to Pakistan and Our Government send money (corruption) to foreign countries . Bitter truth of our country
