The Committee of Administration (COA) headed by Chief of the Naval Staff as its Chairman consists of eight members including the Managing Director of Bahria Foundation. Committee of Administration acts as the supreme governing body of the Bahria Foundation.

It’s an honor and profound privilege, for me, to head such a professional, dedicated and committed organization. To me Bahria Foundation is amalgam of highly disciplined & experienced retired personnel from Pakistan Navy and talented professionals from all fields, which is key to all our success stories so far, and many more are in the making. Bahria Foundation has, since its establishment in 1982, achieved many milestones, may it be services to humanity in terms of education, training, environment, welfare programs for serving & retired Pakistan Navy personnel, tourism and towards economy in terms of large estate infrastructures, employment and rehabilitation of retired Navy personnel, awareness programs on blue economy & maritime sector with largest share in the shape of projects like LNG Terminal, Bahria Transshipment Hub, Dredging Company to be few of many of them.
Today, 1st October 2018, marks another historic day for the Bahria Foundation, as we have completely overhauled its working structure in terms of Human Resource. I give special emphasis to this very important aspect for development of any organization in this ever changing environment where organizations are fast adopting new trends and innovations in terms of their working style. Our new schema of four pillars will cover all sorts of values and traditions that Bahria Foundations has always stood for. Maritime Works Organizations MWO being very close to my heart is the most important pillar where a lot needs to be done, because this sector as a whole is the most neglected one in our country and if we work and utilize our full potential we can bring a lot of business, jobs and services. There are lot of opportunities which are still untapped and using our experience back in the navy and with the help of our young professionals, this single most sector can contribute largest share towards national economy and we can fulfill our dream of blue economy.
