*ISLAMABAD - Finance Minister Asad Umar will give a three-year road map to revive the country’s economy, said Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry on Sunday.*
“It was reassuring to learn from Asad Umar that the upcoming mini budget is geared towards increasing investments and growth and he will announce a three-year roadmap to revive economy,” he tweeted.
Fawad quoted the finance minister as assuring him that he had enough cushion to secure a bailout package from the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Asad Umar earlier on Dec 19 told the Senate Standing Committee on Finance that the government was considering another mini budget and a finance bill could be tabled in parliament in January. He, however, said no final decision in this regard had been made.
