The economy has shown resilience despite severe challenges i.e. floods, security situation, energy shortages, rising international oil and commodity prices and higher interest rates.

Rural areas have benefited from our policies. Due to the historic decision of our Government to ensure higher commodity prices to our farmers, Rs.400 billion have been injected into our rural economy, which in turn has increased the production of agricultural commodities and the demand for durable goods in the economy has helped revive industrial production and brought prosperity. However, there should be no mistake that our challenges remain daunting and there is little room for complacency.

Within the infrastructure sectors, the top priority has been given to the water sector. Agriculture is the back-bone of our economy. With rising population food security will require major expansion both in agriculture output as well as productivity. While working on water conservation to make better use of existing resources, our future depends on radically altering the management of water resources in the country. In the present budget we have kept an allocation of Rs.33.2 billion, or 12% of the total PSDP for water sector projects. Besides completion of Mangla Raising, the program will include important projects like Satpara Multipurpose Dam (Gilgit-Baltistan), Gomalzam (FATA), Kachhi Canal (Balochistan), Rainee Canal (Sindh), Lower Indus Right Bank Irrigation and Drainage Sindh, (Balochistan) Effluent Disposal into RBOD, Extension of Right Bank and out fall Drain from Sehawan to Sea, lining of Distributaries and Minors in Sindh.

After the passage of the 7th NFC award and the 18th Constitutional Amendment much of the potential for growth in tax revenue has shifted to the Provincial Governments. The Constitutional amendment gives the Provinces more autonomy but along with it comes the responsibility to maintain fiscal discipline. The enhanced role of Provincial Governments must compel them to take the lead in ensuring an equitable tax structure and to effectively bring in areas such as agriculture income, services and property in the tax net.
