IMF reaffirms support to economic reforms agenda

An International Monetary Fund (IMF) team led by Jeffrey Franks visited Dubai from August 6 to August 18, 2014, to conduct discussions on the fourth review of Pakistan's IMF-supported programme under the Extended Fund Facility (EFF). Franks issued the following statement on Monday.

"The IMF is encouraged by the overall progress made in pushing ahead with policies to strengthen macroeconomic stability and reviving investment and growth. Economic indicators are generally improving, with growth continuing to gain momentum, inflation on a downward trajectory, and credit to the private sector rebounding sharply. The GDP growth is now expected to rise by 4.3 percent in fiscal year 2014/15 (to June 30), compared to a provisional estimate of 4.1 percent in FY2013/14.

"The meetings and discussions held with Finance Minister Senator Ishaq Dar and Central Bank Governor Ashraf Wathra have been useful. The government of Pakistan's reform programme was broadly on track through end-June. The mission made excellent progress toward agreement on key policy issues going forward. Discussions will be continuing in the coming days via videoconference from Washington, D.C., with the aim of securing a timely completion of the fourth review. "The mission thanks the Pakistani authorities and technical staff for their co-operation and reaffirms the IMF's support to the government's efforts to implement their economic reform agenda."-PR
