CALABASAS, Calif., Oct. 22, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NetSol Technologies, Inc. ("NetSol" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:NTWK) (Nasdaq Dubai:NTWK), a U.S. corporation providing global business services and enterprise application solutions to private and public sector organizations worldwide, today announced that its Chairman and CEO, Najeeb Ghauri, will preside over the NASDAQ Closing Bell ceremony on October 29, 2010 to raise U.S. awareness of the recent flooding in Pakistan.
Mr. Ghauri will preside over the ceremony along with the CEO of the International Medical Corps, a global relief agency; and senior executives from two U.S. Chamber of Commerce affiliates, the U.S.-Pakistan Business Council (USPBC) and the Business Civic Leadership Center (BCLC), which are coordinating the business community's disaster response.
According to the United Nations, the torrential rains and severe floods covered nearly one-fifth of the nation last summer, leaving scores homeless and in need of both immediate and continuing aid. NetSol management and employees have been actively supporting flood relief efforts through fundraising and volunteer service. Additionally, several NetSol employees in Pakistan have assisted relief agencies in carrying out relief and rebuilding efforts.
Mr. Ghauri commented, "We have undertaken this collaborative initiative to increase awareness of one of the worst natural disasters in Pakistan's history among the mainstream media, corporate America, and the American public. Those left homeless as a result of the floods remain in need of assistance. The U.S.-based Pakistani communities have donated millions of dollars, but with winter approaching, the need for donations is more urgent than ever."
Mr. Ghauri continued, "While NetSol's facilities and employees in Pakistan were not directly affected by the floods, we are pleased to share that the NetSol family has generously contributed its time and money to flood response efforts since the crisis hit Pakistan. We encourage our shareholders and investors to donate through recommended flood relief agencies that we and our employees have been utilizing. The rebuilding and rehabilitation of affected areas in Pakistan will take years, and we need Americans to support this noble cause."
