Pakistan is facing challenges on multiple fronts: economic, political and security. 

Pakistan is running out of financial reserves and reaching out to the International Monetary Fund. A meeting, last week, failed to reach an agreement to revive the stalled $6.5 billion bailout package. But both sides have agreed on a set of measures that could help secure the deal. 

Joining the discussion:

  • Aqdas Afzal is an assistant professor at Habib University.
  • Hasaan Khawar is a politician and additional secretary of information for the PTI party. 
  • Zoon Ahmed Khan is a Research Fellow at the Center for China & Globalization.
  • Shuja Nawaz is a Distinguished Fellow at the South Asia Center, at the Atlantic Council.
