Staff From The IMF IS Currently Engaged in Discussions with Pakistani Officials


The International Monetary Fund (IMF) Resident Representative Esther Perez Ruiz said that conversations with Pakistani officials over policy, targeted assistance, and budgetary sustainability continue.

Esther Perez Ruiz said, “IMF staff continue discussions with the Pakistani authorities over policies to reprioritize and better target support toward humanitarian and rehabilitation needs, while also accelerating reform efforts to preserve macroeconomic and fiscal sustainability.”

She added, “The timely finalization of the recovery plan is essential to support the discussions, along with continuing financial support from multilateral and bilateral partners.”

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said earlier this month that it would take into consideration with compassion the targeted aid for the poor and vulnerable, in particular those impacted by the recent floods in Pakistan.
