There has been a flurry of political activity in Pakistan during the last few weeks culminating in the vote of no-confidence that ousted Imran Khan from power and brought in a new government and cabinet. During this period, the challenges to Pakistan’s economic outlook have increased.
To offer insights into these issues amid pandemic-related economic woes and global supply chain shocks, recently appointed Finance Minister H.E Dr. Miftah Ismail will offer perspectives into the new government’s plan in approaching issues facing Pakistan’s economy, as well as opportunities for economic growth and collaboration.
