Finance Minister Ishaq Dar held a series of meetings in Dubai with the management of the leading commercial banks.
Ishaq Dar is visiting the United Arab Emirates, according to the Finance Ministry. While there, he spoke with executives from several top commercial banks, including Dubai Islamic Bank, Ajman Bank, and Emirates NBD.
These banks are the ones who deal commercially with Pakistan and its Ministry of Finance.
The meeting between Ishaq Dar and Dubai-based commercial banks came just days after the federal government decided to withdraw its appeal, challenging the Riba verdict by Federal Shariat Court.
According to officials of the Finance Ministry, the Commercial Banks expressed their trust in the Government’s current economic policies and pledged their continuous support for Pakistan during the meeting.
