In a momentous development, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Executive Board has successfully concluded the first review of Pakistan’s economic reform program, supported by the IMF’s Stand-by Arrangement (SBA). This pivotal approval has triggered an immediate disbursement of SDR 528 million, approximately $700 million, marking a substantial total disbursement under the SBA of $1.9 billion. The green light from the IMF has significantly bolstered investor confidence in the economy, contributing to the Pakistani Rupee’s upward trajectory against the US Dollar.


However, despite the stabilization of economic activity, the IMF has underscored that the outlook remains challenging and contingent on the effective implementation of sound policies. The successful review is a positive step, but ongoing diligence in policy execution is crucial for sustaining and further enhancing economic stability.
