Finance Minister Shaukat Tarin — who unveiled the Pakistan Economic Survey 2020-21 a day earlier — will present the PTI-led government’s budget. The session will begin at 4:00pm.

According to Radio Pakistan, the federal cabinet will meet in Islamabad today to discuss and approve budget proposals. Prime Minister Imran Khan will preside over the meeting.

Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said that all of Pakistan’s economic indicators were positive, adding that the country was moving towards economic stability after a long time.

“The country’s people and institutions have full faith in Prime Minister Imran Khan which has made economic and political stability possible,” he said. The minister also urged the opposition to treat accountability and reforms separately, and take part in talks on electoral and judicial reforms.
