ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Finance and Revenue Miftah Ismail said here on Friday that talks were underway with International Monetary Fund (IMF) and expressed the hope that there would be a turnaround in country’s economic situation very soon. The minister thanked the foreign multinationals that operate in Pakistan and pay a large amount of taxes, provide employment and bring in technology.

He requested all of them to present a plan to export out of Pakistan also and offered to give them tax breaks for that.
