“He (Ishaq Dar) said to me that after the Panama Papers (surfaced), you are heading towards difficult times. I told him that you are right but I can tell you how we are running our economy which will give you a different impression”, said the Panamanian Finance Minister during the interview.
Panama Leaks have had a huge impact on the political landscape of the globe. Recently, Spanish Finance Minister resigned as his name was also included in the Panama Leaks.
