IMF programme critical but not an end in itself, says PM Shehbaz

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has said that although the revival of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) programme was critical to Pakistan’s economy, it was not an end in itself.

PM Shehbaz in his tweet on Tuesday said that the IMF programme was critical to the country’s economy. He has also stressed upon breaking the “economic straitjacket” through structural reforms.

In his tweet, he added, “We will have to work hard to make it [economy] self-sufficient.”

The IMF statement also reads, “The board’s decision allows for an immediate disbursement of $1.1 billion, bringing total purchases for budget support under the arrangement to about US$3.9 billion.”
