Finance Minister Train  Hopeful Of Getting Rid Of IMF By September

Federal Finance Minister Shaukat Tarin has pinned hopes on saying goodbye to IMF after completing the ongoing funding facility provided the country achieves six percent growth rate for the next fiscal year 22-23.

Talking to Khaleej Times the finance minister said Pakistan’s economy is on the right track to post ‘an inclusive and sustainable growth’ of up to five per cent this year that will help the country to get rid of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in September.

Finance Minister Shaukat Tarin, who steers tough economic reforms, is confident of accelerating the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth to six per cent in the next fiscal year starting in July.

“We don’t need the IMF if we achieve sustainable growth of six per cent. I don’t think we need another IMF programme once we complete the ongoing extended fund facility (EFF) in September,” hoped
