September 16, 2021

Minister for Finance and Revenue Shaukat Tarin says due to prudent fiscal policies and strict financial discipline, Pakistan's economy is shifting from consolidation to growth phase.  

During a virtual meeting with Executive Secretary of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and Pacific Armida Salsiah Alisjahbana  on Thursday, he said the Government's objective is to steer economy towards an inclusive and sustainable economic growth with key focus on bottom-up approach as envisaged by the Prime Minister.

He apprised that the government had to opt for IMF program to fix balance of payments crisis due to precarious economic situation in Fiscal Year-2018.

The Minister said a Kamyab Pakistan Program is being introduced to uplift underprivileged population by extending micro-credit to promote financial empowerment.
