DUBAI: Finance Minister Ishaq Dar says growth will remain the hallmark of economic management after the conclusion of the International Monetary Fund program under the leadership of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in the country.

He made these remarks in a meeting with IMF Mission Chief and its members after his arrival in Dubai on Tuesday evening.

The Minister expressed satisfaction on the progress of the negotiations and hoped the last review would be successfully concluded.

He said that the macroeconomic framework is stable because of rising growth, declining inflation, fiscal consolidation aided by rising tax collections, stable external account and higher reserves.

Ishaq Dar said that it would be for the first time that a medium term reforms program supported by IMF would be successfully concluding at the close of its three-year term.
