Pakistan’s finance ministry says the government is improving better than IMF’s projection in terms of the macro-economic indicators, including inflation rate.
A spokesperson of the ministry said in a statement that the inflation rate is anticipated to lower down to around 5% in the mid-term of the current fiscal year.
There have been improvements seen in the external sector, he said. The overall current account deficit has diminished by almost two-thirds in the first quarter of the current fiscal year in comparison to the same period the previous year.
