IMF financing aims to assist countries in attaining economic stability and transition through economic shocks by providing cushion through funds. This gives the recipient country time to bring about the structural reforms and changes needed to resolve underlying issues that threaten its economic stability. These IMF loans are usually disbursed in installments that are conditional upon the recipient country making policy changes or implementing certain economic reforms. This conditionality ensures that progress is made during the program and that the funds are not used only as a stopgap measure. Periodic program reviews evaluate whether the program is on track and if any different measures need to be taken to attain the program’s objectives.

In a historic and positive turn of events, Pakistan recently cleared the final USD 102 million, a portion of its USD 6.4 billion 3-year International Monetary Fund (IMF) program.
