Description
The proposed Improved Domestic Resource Mobilization Reform Program will help the Government of Pakistan address major binding constraints to mobilize larger resources to enhance productive investment by improving: (i) domestic revenue mobilization (DRM), (ii) the quality of public expenditure and cash management for improving allocative efficiency of scarce public resources, and (iii) the mobilization and utilization of domestic savings and foreign direct investment (FDI).
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy
Pakistan, the world's fifth-most populous nation, is a lower-middle-income country with gross national income per capita of $1,557 in 2021. The poverty rate fell from 50.4% in 2006 to 21.9% in 2018. However, another 19.9% of the population are near-poor and vulnerable to shocks that could pull them below the poverty line. With a large informal economy, macroeconomic shocks such as the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic in 2020 and the global supply chain disruption in 2021 have pushed the country's poor deeper into poverty. The country's ability to mobilize adequate domestic resources, including creating fiscal space through better expenditure management, remain critical to ensure quality investments in essential public services such as health and education and promote equitable development across its provinces.
