IMF approves $6 billion loan for Pakistan

KARACHI:
In line with expectations, the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) Executive Board approved the $6 billion loan package for Pakistan.

IMF spokesperson Gerry Rice tweeted, “IMF Executive Board approved today a three-year $6 billion loan to support Pakistan’s economic plan, which aims to return sustainable growth to the country’s economy and improve the standards of living.”

Pakistan and the IMF had already agreed on a deal at the staff level, however, the final approval was pending on conditions that the government had to meet.

The IMF is expected to release the first tranche of $500 million in the current month.

Adviser to PM on Finance Abdul Hafeez Shaikh also confirmed the news on twitter.

“IMF Board approved a $6 billion Extended Fund Facility (EFF) for Pakistan to support our economic reform program. Our program supports broad based growth by reducing imbalances in the economy. Social spending has been strengthened to completely protect vulnerable segments.”
