Finance Minister Shaukat Tarin in Washington to negotiate with the IMF

The increase in petroleum and electricity prices comes at a time when Finance Minister Shauklat Tarin is concluding his Washington visit where he met the IMF officials.

The finance minister was supposed to brief the IMF on the economic performance and situation of Pakistan.

If negotiations are successful the IMF will immediately disburse $1 billion.

The talks would likely affect common people in the country in three respects.

the IMF has told the government to abolish or significantly reduce all kinds of subsidies, according to officials.

It has demanded that the privatization program be expedited and that a timeframe be set for the auction of loss-making state-owned companies.

Last month, the State Bank of Pakistan raised the interest rate from 7% to 7.25% after a 15-month gap.

Finance Minister Shaukat Tarin said that they decided to do this for the IMF program.
