Restructuring of the economy is the need of the hour, Shehbaz Sharif


Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif on Wednesday asserted that a new government following elections would have to pursue another programme with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), emphasising major decisions to strengthen economy.

Speaking to a private news channel, the former prime minister said that the new government following elections will be compelled to undertake major decisions, urging voters to choose his party for economic stability.

Shehbaz Sharif emphasised the need for comprehensive economic reforms, saying that the restructuring of the economy is the need of the hour to address broader issues facing the national economy.

Expressing deep concern over terror attacks in Balochistan, he noted that such incidents wanted to instill fear among voters. He highlighted that past decisions inadvertently provided opportunities for terrorists, emphasising the collective sacrifices made by Pakistan in the fight against terrorism.

The PML-N president acknowledged the sacrifices made by security forces in fighting terrorism and emphasised Pakistan’s role in global peace efforts.

Shehbaz Sharif painted a bleak picture of Pakistan’s economic situation, cautioning that the nation’s economic foundation remains fragile, potentially requiring another IMF programme if his party does not win the elections.
