The purpose of the workshop will be to train parliamentarians and ministers on how to use social media effectively. The one of its kind workshop has immense significance because we live in a digitized world, in which social media is the most effective mean of communicating and getting your narrative out in front of the world. It also provides a voice to the downtrodden, as well as it can help Pakistan make an impact and get their perspective heard on issues relating to world politics and regional stability.

The main purpose is to increase public reachability, as when all of them will be present on social media, a layman can easily reach out to them, convey their issues and establish a stronger relationship with their representatives.
Prime Minister Office has exclusively collaborated with National IT Board (NITB) and Facebook to train the public representatives. The collaboration is first of its kind, not only due to the nature of the workshop but also because it shows how the government stakeholders are committed to making Pakistan’s presence felt on the digital media.
