Pakistan to resume talks with IMF from 18th May

The Pakistani government and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will meet next week, starting May 18, to discuss “the latest economic developments and policy implementation,” according to Baaghi TV.

Pakistan has also been asked by the IMF to continue implementing policies aimed at maintaining macroeconomic stability as well as inclusive and sustainable growth.

The demand suggests that the IMF wants to see gasoline subsidies reversed and that the government plans to raise petroleum prices on May 15, signalling that the administration is serious about restarting talks with the Fund to revive the stalled IMF programme.
