ISLAMABAD: Managing Director International Monetary Fund (IMF) Christine Lagarde congratulated Prime Minister Nawaz on the completion of country’s IMF-supported economic reform programme.

“Pakistan has achieved a great deal over the past three years, and I congratulate you and your colleagues on the completion of your IMF-supported economic reform programme which helped restore macroeconomic stability and strengthen economy’s resilience,” MD IMF said in a letter addressed to Prime Minister Sharif.

Christine Lagarde, who recently visited Pakistan, said she was encouraged that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif planned to continue pushing ahead with reforms to facilitate a deeper structural transformation of the economy and set it on a path of higher and more inclusive growth.

The IMF would be happy to assist Pakistan in its future endeavours in any way possible, she assured.

Referring to her recent visit, the IMF MD said, “It was a pleasure for me to visit Pakistan and meet with you and your economic team. I truly enjoyed my first visit to Pakistan and the engaging conversations we have had about the progress and future direction of your economic reform program.”

“Allow me to express my gratitude for your hospitality, and the excellent cooperation between Pakistan and IMF,” she added.
