KARACHI: The rupee fell 0.66% during the previous week, losing value in 3 of the 4 sessions while remaining unchanged in the other, to end at a new record low of 181.78 against the US dollar in the inter-bank market.

The currency remained under pressure even as Pakistan’s current account deficit shrunk in February, as falling foreign exchange reserves and out-of-control oil prices kept the market on edge.

Expectations of a high import bill in coming months have remained intact, say market experts. Additionally, rising political uncertainty over the opposition’s no-confidence motion against the prime minister have only added to the woes as market sentiment remains dented.
