ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has set 4.8per cent GDP growth target for its 2021/2022 financial year, Planning Minister Asad Umar said on Friday.

Pakistan has said it was on course to achieve 3.94per cent GDP growth for the outgoing 2020/2021 year, double the IMF and World Bank projections.

"This growth is an indicator that the revival that has started is continuing its momentum," Umar told a news conference in Islamabad.
