Pakistan adopts IMF system named e-GDDS by publishing data via NSDP or National Summary Data Page. The IMF press release revealed the news.
However, in 2015, IMF developed e-GDDS to support the enhanced data transparency. On the other side, it encourages the statistical development and also creates synergies between surveillance and data dissemination.

Pakistan’s Bureau of Statistics hosted NSDP that utilizes Statistical Data and Metadata Exchange. In addition, a link to Pakistan’s NSDP is available on IMF Dissemination Standards Bulletin Board. It contains links to statistics that are published by State Bank of Pakistan, Pakistan Bureau of Statistics, and Ministry of Finance.
