Pakistan is in a better position to negotiate with IMF, after bailout packages by friendly countries:

Dr. Abid Qayyum Sulehri (Economist):

It is the first address of Imran Khan as the Prime Minister to any international forum. The Prime Minister has tried to highlight the priorities of its government for economic revival and also motivate the foreign investors to invest in Pakistan. The bailout packages offered by friendly countries will definitely reduce the difficulties; however Pakistan still needs IMF support to overcome fiscal deficit. Pakistan is now in a better position to negotiate with IMF because the government will aim to have a minimum impact on low-income classes.
