Javed Malik said that the overseas Pakistani community remembers very well that it was under the tenure of Nawaz Sharif that the first Overseas Pakistanis Conference was held in Pakistan, green channels were opened where Pakistanis living abroad could come home with the respect and dignity. Nawaz Sharif also initiated the economic reforms, and good governance initiatives which were greatly responsible for inflow of foreign investments.
