Financial Sector Restructuring in Pakistan
In this paper an attempt has been made to review the financial restructuring process and its importance for economic growth and macroeconomic stability. The main focus is on the financial restructuring efforts undertaken by the government of Pakistan since 1990. We also analyze the impact of financial restructuring by using various financial indicators. The overall results suggest that the financial industry in Pakistan is showing remarkable and unprecedented growth. Unlike 1990, the performance of the financial sectoris much better today. After the successful completion of first generation reforms, the introduction of second generation reforms is required, which will help to further strengthen the financial system and transfer the benefitsof the first generation reforms to society.
