Pakistan and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have agreed on a review for Pakistan’s Stand-By Arrangement (SBA). This means that Pakistan will have access to around US$700 million. The agreement aims to support Pakistan’s efforts to reduce debt, improve social protection, reform the energy sector, and strengthen the exchange rate. The IMF team visited Islamabad and discussed Pakistan’s economic program supported by the SBA. They also outlined key priorities including fiscal consolidation, social safety net strengthening, energy sector reforms, exchange rate improvements, proactive monetary policy, financial sector resilience, state-owned enterprise and governance reforms, and cooperation with international partners. The IMF team appreciated the cooperation and discussions with Pakistani authorities and other partners during their visit. For more information, you can contact the IMF Communications Department.
