According to a report, the impression that talks with IMF have failed is incorrect. Islamabad has actually “agreed” to comply with the IMF’s new conditions, including an increase in tax revenue, and ensure the implementation of a privatization programme to secure the donor’s loan programme.

The spokesperson said dialogue with the IMF team is still underway, adding that a formal announcement on it will be issued as soon as talks conclude.

The government will have to take measures to increase tax revenue, he said, adding that the IMF has rejected the ministry’s plan and imposed conditions that would see an increase in interest rates and fixing the market rate of the dollar. The IMF board will make the final announcement regarding the loan program, added the spokesperson.
