KARACHI: The rupee remained largely stable during the week, ending with a 0.57% gain as the market considered Pakistan’s macroeconomic indicators and ongoing talks with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) as giving some level of clarity going forward.

At the end of the week, the rupee closed at 185.69 against the US dollar ahead of long Eid holidays.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif also undertook a trip to Saudi Arabia, with reports indicating the premier visited the kingdom to enhance levels of bilateral cooperation as well as augment the oil facility that was extended by this major oil-producing country last year.

Together with the IMF’s Extended Fund Facility, Pakistan is looking to boost its foreign exchange reserves that have fallen to less than two months of import cover.

Rupee rebounds, appreciates 0.13% against US dollar

With a current account deficit reported at over $ 1 billion for March, Islamabad is currently in a precarious situation, looking to balance economic growth and increasing financing needs, which have put pressure on the rupee.
