Finance Minister Ishaq Dar unveiled the Pakistan Economic Survey for 2022-23 on Thursday.
In his remarks at the occasion, the minister stated that the government’s economy is built on five E’s: exports, equity, empowerment, the environment, and energy. “There are 17 chapters in the survey,” he continued.
He went on to warn that Pakistan’s economy has fallen from 24th largest in the world in 2018 to 47th in 2022. “It’s all about the economy,” he continued.
GDP growth was 0.29 percent, with agriculture, industry, and services growing at 1.5 percent, 2.59 percent, and 0.86 percent, respectively. GDP growth is a reasonable estimate, and nothing could be better, he continued.
