Arif Ahmed Khan appointed as finance secretary

ISLAMABAD: The government on Saturday appointed Arif Ahmed Khan as Ministry of Finance secretary.

Khan, who was currently serving as secretary of Economic Affairs Division, has also served as the secretary of the Interior Ministry.

After previous secretary Shahid Mehmood retired from the post, the post had fallen vacant. However, reports emerged that Mehmood will be appointed as an adviser to the finance minister.

This is not the only change the portfolio has undergone in the last three months or so.

On December 26, last year, Member National Assembly Rana Muhammad Afzal Khan took oath as Minister of State of Finance, in a ceremony held in the federal capital.

In November, Prime Minister Abbasi had accepted Ishaq Dar’s request to be relieved of his duties as finance minister. Dar has been receiving medical treatment in London and has been declared a proclaimed offender by an accountability court hearing the corruption reference against him.
