Pakistan Seeks 24th IMF Bailout for Structural Reforms

Pakistan aims for a 24th medium-term IMF bailout to drive enduring structural reforms, confirms the International Monetary Fund. The staff-level agreement secures approximately USD 1.1 billion, highlighting Pakistan’s interest in a successor program for fiscal and external sustainability.

Focus Areas for Reforms

The proposed Extended Fund Facility emphasizes four central areas: strengthening public finances, restoring energy sector viability, stabilizing inflation, and promoting private-led activity. These reforms target fiscal consolidation, energy sector efficiency, inflation control, and private sector growth.

IMF’s Evaluation and Pakistan’s Commitment

IMF acknowledges Pakistan’s economic progress but underscores the need for continued policy efforts to address deep-seated vulnerabilities. The State Bank of Pakistan pledges to uphold prudent monetary policies to tackle inflation and ensure exchange rate flexibility.

Moving Forward

Pakistan’s commitment to ongoing policy efforts aligns with IMF’s objectives to stabilize the economy and foster sustainable recovery. Despite challenges, both parties are dedicated to navigating Pakistan towards economic resilience and growth.
