Dr. Shahid Hassan Siddiqui (Economist):
The government is giving prime priority to the economic stabilization. As a result of government's economic policies, Pakistan managed to get bailout package by IMF. Now the motive of the government should be to provided relief to the people, reduce the inflation and provide jobs to the youth. Pakistan must shift towards exports as the key driver of growth rather than to rely on foreign aid. The government has its hands tied with reference to implementing growth-friendly policies when under an IMF programme.
