KARACHI: The rupee saw another week of positivity, gaining 1.8% during the five sessions to close at 282.69 against the US dollar in the inter-bank market. The gains took the winning streak to 22 sessions, and helped the rupee close at its highest level since July.

At the same time, the gap with rates in the open market narrowed to negligible levels, meeting a key condition of the programme with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The increase has come on the back of administrative measures including a crackdown on smuggling and structural reforms in the Exchange Companies’ sector.

Meanwhile, during the previous week, the Ministry of Finance asked all ministries to implement all the IMF as the first review under the Standby Arrangement (SBA) becomes due.
