An official said that the delegation would hold marathon meetings with Hafeez Shaikh and top officials of the Ministry of Finance, Planning Minister Khusro Bakhtyar, Planning Commission officials and the Minister of Economic Affairs Hammad Azhar and his team.
According to sources, critical discussions were anticipated over FBR’s revenue collection challenges even though the government expects higher than targeted inflows from non-tax revenues.
The ministers will brief the visiting delegation on the economic situation of the country. Last week, the IMF had said that Pakistan needed to increase its tax revenue in order to fund development.
The IMF delegation will meet Prime Minister Imran Khan, Federal Minister for Economic Affairs Hammad Azhar, and Federal Minister for Planning, Development and Reforms Khusro Bakhtiar.
