Will get 1.2 billion dollar installment from IMF?
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) delegation has come to Pakistan to finalize the ninth review of the $7 billion loan to Pakistan. If this review is successful, it will clear the way for Pakistan to get the installment of $ 1.2 billion. On the other hand, the decision to remove the price cap was taken by the government when the country’s economic condition worsened due to repaying foreign debt and battling rising inflation.
Foreign exchange reserves $ 3.09 billion
In addition, Pakistan’s foreign exchange reserves are also depleting, with foreign exchange reserves now at $3.09 billion, allowing Pakistan to cover only 18 days of imports, and to avoid a possible default, it needs an IMF bailout. There is a great need to release the next installment under it.
