    This paper estimates Pakistan’s’ external debt by using Debt Sustainability Assessment (DSA) methodology developed by IMF and World Bank [IDA and IMF . The issues of poverty and the distribution of wealth are ones that have been addressed by many. The literature is voluminous especially since the nineteenth century, the issues are not new, so why has very little changed in terms of wealth distribution and poverty, and what are the connections to debt?

    Poverty measured using the $ line is expected to decline from pc last year to pc in fiscal year , while poverty measured using the $ poverty line is projected at pc in fiscal. At HIPC's inception in , the primary threshold requirement was that the country's debt remains at unsustainable levels despite full application of traditional, bilateral debt relief. At the time, HIPC considered debt unsustainable when the ratio of debt-to-exports exceeded % or when the ratio of debt-to-government revenues exceeded %.

    Owing to the pandemic restrictions that have slowed down economies, the report forecasts median real GDP to fall by per cent in and the budget deficit to widen to per cent in billion. Consequently the debt burden (external debt and foreign exchange liabilities as a percentage of foreign exchange earnings) rose from percent in to percent in This implies that the debt servicing liability had risen to unsustainable level, and rollover of the payments became a norm rather than an exception.
