Pakistan's rupee continued to gain for the third consecutive session against the US dollar, appreciating 0.65% to close below the 174 level at the inter-bank market on Wednesday.

As per the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP), the PKR closed at 173.76 against the USD after a day-on-day appreciation of Rs1.13 or 0.65%. The improvement comes after the rupee gained 0.23% or Rs0.40 against the dollar on Tuesday.

Last week on Friday, the PKR had depreciated to its lowest historic level of 175.73 against the USD in the inter-bank market.

The rupee has seen a volatile ride against the US dollar in the past few weeks, amid lack of clarity over the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Extended Fund Facility (EFF) announcement.

This latest round of appreciation, however, comes as Adviser to the Prime Minister on Finance and Revenue Shaukat Tarin repeated that approval of the pending sixth review of the EFF is contingent on the fulfilment of about five prior actions set by the IMF.

Pakistan's rupee registers second successive gain against US dollar

Talking to media persons, Tarin said that three major prior actions are power tariff, withdrawal of exemptions, and agreed autonomy to the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP), while he did not reveal the remaining two, and stated that they are of less importance.

“We have already fulfilled the power tariff increase for this review and the remaining would be due after February 2022,” said Tarin.

IMF facility hinges on ‘5 prior actions’: Tarin

To a question on SBP deputy governor’s statement that the recent depreciation would fuel inflation, Tarin expressed confidence that the rupee would strengthen as soon as the Fund programme is revived after completion of the sixth review.
