Foreign exchange reserves crash by $2.6 bln despite financial support from friendly countries

June 28, 2019 (MLN): The foreign exchange reserves held by State Bank of Pakistan have fallen sharply by $2.6 billion in the first 11 months of current government.

The foreign reserves stood at $7.282 billion as of June 21, 2019, as compared to $9.88 billion in August 2018.

In the same way, the total foreign exchange reserves stood at $14.35 billion as of June 21, whereas they totaled $16.391 billion in August 2018.
