IMF applause: Why Pakistan has no reason to rejoice?

1395/8/9 | 21:20
    International Monetary Fund’s president, Christine Lagarde, who is recently on a visit to Pakistan, said that the country’s perception on corruption was hurting growth. She was speaking as a keynote speaker at a seminar on “Pakistan and Emerging Markets in the World’s Economy.” She was the first head of IMF to visit Pakistan after the passage of 10 years. She stated that Pakistan’s public debt was high and with corruption being endemic, the country needed a three-pronged strategy to arrest this slide. Previously she ...

IMF praise: Why Pakistan needs to do more?

1395/7/12 | 21:20
 International Monetary Fund's Mission Chief to Pakistan Harald Finger has expressed hope that Pakistan's economy will set on a new and sustainable course, breaking from the past cycles of near-crises and aborted stabilisation programmes. "With stronger buffers, improved sentiment, gradually recovering growth, and prospects of more energy supply and an additional impetus from the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), there was hope that Pakistan's economy would set on a new and sustainable course," he wrote in an article published on Friday. ...

Monster of deficit: Pakistan’s slight drift towards bankruptcy

1395/7/7 | 21:20
Pakistan’s current account deficit swelled by more than 90 per cent in the first two months of the current fiscal year, reflecting an increasing pressure on the external front as inflows from all foreign sources are slowing. Falling exports have widened the trade gap, pushing the government to take more steps to save foreign exchange reserves of over $22 billion. The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) on Wednesday reported that the current account deficit rose to $1.316bn during July-August, 92pc higher as compared to $686m a year earlier. Time was ...

Dangerous deficit: Why Pakistan economy can’t be stable?

The deficit during the first month of the current fiscal year of 2016/17 posted a year-on-year expansion of 152 percent from the corresponding month of 2015/16. The deficit rose by 93pc compared to the same period last year, making it difficult to paper over it by pointing towards remittances and inflows from creditors. There may well be a continued expansion in the ...

Deceiving the nation:  Ishaq Dar’s false claims on Tax defaulters

1395/6/20 | 21:20
 Finance Minister Ishaq Dar told the Senate on Tuesday that the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) had detected 36,936 tax defaulters this year and Rs87.93 billion was outstanding against them. The Senate unanimously passed a resolution to pay homage to the military men who had sacrificed their lives for the country’s defence in the 1965 war.

Earlier, in response to a question asked by Mian Ateeq Shaikh of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement, the finance ...

Mounting debt: Would Pakistan run bankrupt?

1395/6/14 | 21:20
 Overseas Pakistani workers sent remittances amounting to over $1.3 billion in July, down 20.2% from the same month of 2015. On a month-on-month basis, the drop in remittances clocked up at almost 36% in July, as overseas Pakistanis had remitted over $2 billion in June. However, The State Bank governor tried to perform this fragile balancing act on Thursday when he held a news conference to try to reassure the markets that the country’s debt-servicing capacity remains strong and whatever drop in remittances we saw in July owed itself mostly ...

Falling FDI: Is China shying away to invest in Pakistan?

1395/5/30 | 21:20
  Foreign direct investment (FDI) in Pakistan clocked up at $64.3 million in July, down 14.6% from FDI received in the first month of the preceding fiscal year. Statistics released by the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) on Tuesday show inflows from China slowed down substantially in the first month of 2016-17. China became the principal foreign direct investor in the last fiscal year, with a net inflow of almost $600 million in 2015-16. As a result, FDI in Pakistan surged 38.8% year on year to $1.28 billion in 2015-16, with China contributing ...

Declining Export: Low oil glut and Pakistan’s ailing economy

1395/5/23 | 21:20
There is a disconcerting trend in exports as from a peak of $25.3 billion in 2011 the value of exports from Pakistan has fallen to $22 billion in 2015. According to the world development indicators, exports as a percentage of GDP for Pakistan have fallen from 14% in 2011 to 11% in 2015. Although the global trade has decreased in 2015, the looming external debt position of Pakistan makes the impact of the decline ever more daunting. The total debt service as a percentage of exports of goods, services and primary income has risen from 11.3% in 2008 ...

IMF Gone:  A claim no easy to trust

1395/5/18 | 21:20
Pakistan will not renew its bailout package with the International Monetary Fund. After the IMF completed the 12th and final review of the current bailout package, Finance Minister Ishaq Dar announced what had been expected for weeks. Dar’s bold words: ‘Pakistan has said goodbye to the IMF’. This is a hope we share with the finance minister. Pakistan will, however, remain committed to following the IMF’s reform plan to raise revenues and reform key public sector enterprises. With only the last tranche of $102 million of the $6.6 billion ...
