It may be recalled that Mr. Raza Baqir remained posted in Sydney as Consul General from June 1997 to December 2000 and Now when after 16 years he is visiting Australia noted a lot of positive changes in Australian multicultural Society and Pakistani Community. It may not be out of place to mention that Mr Raza Baqir enjoys tremendous respect and love in Sydney due to dedication, sincerity and devotion to duty. He was the first Consul General who started all sorts of consular work including visa, passport, attestation etc in Sydney. Due to financial constraints and to save public money, he didn't ask for any additional staff and discharged extra consular functions with the already existing meagre staff of only two persons which later swelled to many.
