The Government of Pakistan has already made progress including removing tax exemptions worth 0.34% of GDP and publishing a directory of all taxpayers. It published its second federal budget on 3 June which included further emphasis on increasing revenue from 9% to 15% of GDP by 2018, through new measures to widen the tax net and phase out exemptions. Through these the government aims to raise additional revenue of over $2.2 billion in 2014/15.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>It has also committed to increase the share of GDP spent on education from 2% to 4% by 2018.

The 2013-14 DFID Annual report will be published on our website on 15 July, detailing our confirmed figures. Further information on centrally-managed UK aid spending delivered through multilaterals operating in Pakistan is available at: <a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/publications/statistics-on-international-development-2013" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/statistics-on-international-development-2013</a>.</p><p> </p><p>For 2014-2015 DFID Pakistan has been allocated £310 million. This is subject to project performance as well as continued progress with key policy reforms, including on tax. Current plans suggest that £10 million of this will be spent through multilateral agencies. For future years the resource allocation process is underway and no specific budgets have yet been agreed.</p><p> </p> more like this
