It's deeply disturbing that only about 2 out of 10 women in Pakistan 🇵🇰 have access to a bank account 🏦.
This lack of financial inclusion not only limits women's ability to make their own financial decisions and have autonomy, but it also has significant social and economic impacts.
Access to finance has been linked to women's empowerment 💪, allowing them to create economic opportunities for themselves and, in turn, improve the welfare of their families 🤝.
Women tend to prioritize the education 📚 and health 🏥 of their children, so when they are financially empowered, their families benefit. Furthermore, expanding credit to women-owned businesses can help these businesses grow 📈 and bring their savings into the formal economy.
However, without access to financing and employment opportunities, women cannot be economically productive, perpetuating gender inequality and keeping Pakistan trapped in its patriarchal society.

پاکستان ڈیفالٹ کے دہانے پر؟ سابق وزیر خزانہ مفتاح اسماعیل نے خبردار کیا ہے کہ اگر ملک نے مدد کے لیے آئی ایم ایف سے رجوع نہیں کیا تو سنگین نتائج برآمد ہوں گے۔ لیکن موجودہ وزیر خزانہ اسحاق ڈار کا اصرار ہے کہ آئی ایم ایف حکومت کو حکم نہیں دے سکتا اور وہ ان کی مدد کے بغیر "کوئی
مسئلہ نہیں" کا انتظام کریں گے۔ برآمدات 31 بلین ڈالر اور ترسیلات زر 30 بلین ڈالر، اور آمدنی اور اخراجات میں 19 بلین ڈالر کے فرق کے ساتھ، کیا پاکستان کا چین پاکستان اقتصادی راہداری (CPEC) پر انحصار اپنی اقتصادی ترقی کو محفوظ بنانے کے لیے کافی ہے؟ ایک پروفیسر مقامی صنعت کو سپورٹ
کرنے اور مہنگائی کو کنٹرول کرنے کے طریقے کے طور پر کرنسی کی قدر میں کمی اور لگژری درآمدات پر پابندی لگانے کا مشورہ دیتے ہیں۔ آپ کے خیال میں پاکستان کی مشکلات کا شکار معیشت کے لیے بہترین اقدام کیا ہے؟

The Pakistani government has decided to use all legal means to recover PKR 447 billion in unpaid Gas Infrastructure Development Cess (GIDC) from commercial and industrial entities.

Read 🧵 below 👇
The Supreme Court of Pakistan ordered the recovery of all GIDC accrued by 2020-21 and suspended future GIDC until all outstanding amounts were recovered. However, 3,194 petitions in various high courts are hindering the recovery of PKR 420 billion.
The government may also lose the power to collect GIDC if it fails to carry out development projects, such as pipelines from Turkmenistan, Iran, or from Karachi to Lahore, depending on the international and political environment.

Just two budget items: 1) Interest on debt and 2) Defence, consumed the majority of Pakistan's budget during the first five months of this fiscal year, even more than the total net income of the federal government. 😮
See 🧵 below👇
This has led to a severe curtailment of other expenses and an alarming increase of 83% in the interest cost on the Rs50 trillion federal government debt stock.
The risks of sovereign defaults are very high in the absence of an International Monetary Fund (IMF) umbrella and no major cash handouts by bilateral creditors.
