KARACHI: President of United Business Group (UBG) Zubair Tufail has said that in the current situation of the country, it is necessary to obtain a loan from the International Financial Institution, but depending on the IMF is not a permanent solution.

He said that the government should keep in mind increasing cost of living in the country and must provide some relief to workers who get low monthly salary.
