Pakistan is in a precarious economic condition as it continues to negotiate with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to resurrect a dormant Extended Fund Facility. The IMF noted out ‘deviations’ on fiscal sides from the measures adopted in the previous review at their most recent meeting.

As a result, no consensus at the staff level was obtained. To meet programme objectives, the Fund emphasised the importance of tangible policy steps, particularly the removal of fuel and energy subsidies and the fiscal year 2023 budget.

Last week, the government partially eliminated the gasoline subsidy and raised the price of petroleum goods by Rs30 per litre to demonstrate its commitment to restoring the programme.
