Ishaq Dar Full Speech Over Budget In Parliament (3rd June 2016)

Finance Minister Ishaq Dar presented the budget for the upcoming fiscal year 2016-17 on Friday, with an outlay of Rs4.394 trillion – a 7.3 per cent increase over the previous year – and a growth target set at 5.7pc.

With Dar’s concession that the agriculture sector’s negative growth of -0.19pc dragged the economy down, there were expectations that the budget would come up with new measures to spur growth in the sector.
