THE ECONOMY

Goldman Sachs highlights the Pakistani Rupee’s undervaluation by nearly 20%, with a bright 12-month forecast showing a 26% nominal carry opportunity. Amidst expectations of the first positive real interest rate in over three years and falling inflation, the Rupee’s future looks promising. February’s inflation dipped to a 20-month low, setting the stage for potential monetary easing. Despite the anticipation for the State Bank of Pakistan’s (SBP) next move by March 18, a rate cut might wait until April, reflecting a cautious approach to nurturing economic recovery while keeping inflation in check.
