the way current govt is declining rupee value it will be 250 bilion USD again in few months.
Nope. Rupee is free floating. It will stop where market wants it to stop. It is not overvalued like it did in previous govt. It will stay somewhere between 170-180. You really believe rupee was strong when CAD was way above $20 billion and exports declined. It was overvalued.
In rupee terms GDP will increase and mask the effect caused by depreciation (if further depreciation happened).

Does it matter?
Productivity matters not rupee value

As long as GDP in rupee terms is increasing ALONG with actual productivuty nothing matters
Government has set a target of nearly 6 trillion PKR in taxes and it would seem they would achive that target what are your thoughts on that the incumbent finance minister early into his term talked a lot about getting retaliers in tax net i dont know about the progress on that though.

Summary
Overall good news if govt can maintain spending without CAD going beyond 2-2.5%(7-8b$)
key missing ingredient is taxation
Exports subsidzation will still be needed
Remittance and inflows for projects(WB AB FDI CPEC) is the key

It will acheive it but 6 trillion is nothing
Its just 10% vs 20% in india

Layman question, if our currency was 115 rupees to dollar instead of current 176 rupees, would our gdp still be the same?

Nope, on exchange rate of Rs 105 to 1$ the GDP in Dollar terms would be far higher.
That's where BD or India is looking better than Pakistan in dollar terms. Devaluation of rupees has hit Pakistan GDP and Per Capita in dollar terms.
Ishaq Dar should be publicly hanged, he is the one who borrowed through private companies with sovereign guarantees , these were the mines Dr Ishfaq was referring to, these borrowing never shown in the official figures, thus giving the impression of better economic conditions than there were.
It kept the rupee artificially high in international market.
As a matter of fact Pakistan was technically bankrupted by thug Ishaq Dar.

Stupid Pakistani public should be thankful to Imran Khan that Pakistan is still functioning, if it was PMLN , Pakistan would have been in dire situation.
