International Monetary Fund has acknowledged that Pakistan's reform program is on track and already producing results.

According to a Press Release of Finance Ministry, IMF in its latest report conceded that the business climate has improved, and market confidence is returning.

It said that the Pakistan economy has witnessed significant improvements, including stability in exchange rates for five months and appreciation in rupee's value.
