Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif has called upon the international community to honor their commitments made at the COP27 Conference in Sharm El-Sheikh.

Addressing Challenges and Shocks:

During the Summit for a New Global Financing Pact, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif highlighted the exogenous shocks that have affected developing countries like Pakistan, creating a polycrisis. These shocks have led to economic growth stagnation, disruptions in supply chains resulting in soaring commodity prices, and the occurrence of extreme weather events that triggered unprecedented floods, causing losses amounting to 30 billion dollars for Pakistan.
