2.7 Million Pakistanis Left the Country in 5 Years At a Rate of Over 1400/Day

Over the last five years, a significant number of highly qualified young Pakistanis have selected to seek opportunities abroad, with the total count reaching approximately 2.7 million individuals. This trend, often Known as “brain drain,” has persisted despite efforts to address the original factors driving it.

Conferring to official data, more than about 400,000 highly refined and skilled Pakistani youths left the country in the first six months of the current year alone. This adds to the confounding total of 2.7 million who have sought greener pastures foreign over the past five years.

Experts attribute this spectacle to a variety of factors, including inexact economic conditions, rising inflation, and high levels of unemployment. They note that these encounters are not limited to any specific region of the country, disturbing young people nationwide.

A breakdown of the data exposes that those leaving Pakistan come from diverse professional backgrounds. Among them are auditors, engineers, doctors, technicians, bosses, nurses, teachers, electricians, computer typists, agricultural-experts, computer operators, supervisors, and draftsmen.

The most popular endpoint for Pakistani expatriates includes various countries in the Middle East, with a significant number heading toward Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, and Qatar. Moreover, a notable number have chosen to migrate to countries outdoor the Middle East, such as the United Kingdom, the United-States, Malaysia, Greece, & Romania.

The effect of this exodus is felt across the country, with individuals from all shires and regions opting to relocate in search of better opportunities. Punjab, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh, Balochistan, Azad Jammu Kashmir, and Islamabad have all taken part in the outflow of talent from Pakistan.

Despite government efforts to speech the issue, the departure of highly educated and expert youth continues unabated. The scale of this migration underlines the need for comprehensive policies and initiatives aimed at creating a conducive environment for young people to flourish within the country, thereby stemming the tide of brain drain.
