Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif on Saturday said that he had told the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) about his government’s resolve to complete the terms of IMF’s program.
The prime minister said via his Twitter account that he spoke with the IMF MD on phone yesterday.
“I also explained Pakistan’s economic difficulties, especially after the devastating floods. IMF delegation will come to Pakistan soon,” he added in a tweet.
The IMF’s managing director, Kristalina Georgieva, called Pakistan’s prime minister on Friday to express her deep sorrow and worry over the deaths and damage caused by the recent floods. Georgieva also reaffirmed her commitment to supporting Pakistan during this trying time.
In response to the Prime Minister’s invitation to attend the Climate Resilient Pakistan Conference in Geneva, Kristalina Georgieva thanked him and said she would be able to attend virtually because the IMF Board meetings had been scheduled for January 9–10.
