Pakistan Enhanced Partnership Agreement

USAID`s programs, which will be supported by this agreement, have been developed in consultation with the Pakistani government and support the Pakistani government`s 2025 vision, which sets out a roadmap for a prosperous Pakistan. Shortly after the PEPA agreement came into force, Pakistan-U.S. relations deteriorated to near the lowest level in decades. This has also had an impact on actual KLB commitments and payments. Due to the slowness of disbursements and use, usaid is unlikely to be able to consume the full amount within one year. That is why the government has renewed the agreement with the United States. The agreement, reached on September 16, represents an additional $407 million to support U.S. and Pakistani government initiatives to improve critical infrastructure, create economic opportunities and pursue economic and political reforms that promote prosperity, according to a press release released here on Tuesday.
