PKR gains 1.8 rupees against US dollar in interbank...

June 29, 2022 (MLN): Riding on the upward trail, the Pakistani rupee (PKR) has appreciated by 1.8 rupees against the US dollar in today's interbank session as the currency settled the trade at PKR 205.12 compared to the previous closing of 206.87 per USD.

The positive sentiments stemmed in the market after Pakistan received the Memorandum of Economic and Financial Policies (MEFP) wherein the fund set four tough conditions to revive stalled $6 billion loan program.

This includes an increase in electricity tariffs, imposing a levy on petroleum products, ending the government’s role in determining the oil prices, and setting up an anti-corruption task force to review all the existing laws that were aimed at curbing graft in the government departments.

After implementing the conditions, the IMF would present Pakistan’s request for the approval of the loan tranche and revival of the program to its executive board – a process that may consume another month, the sources said, quoted Tribune.
