UNDERLYING CAUSES OF FLUCTUATION

The backdrop to these financial movements is rich with political and economic developments. The recent general elections, held on February 8, introduced a layer of uncertainty that momentarily unsettled the PKR’s otherwise stable performance against the USD. Despite a generally steady week, the currency faced its fair share of ups and downs, reflective of the broader uncertainties plaguing the nation.

THE ROLE OF INTERNATIONAL INFLUENCES

It’s important to highlight the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) role amidst these fluctuations. The IMF has signaled a willingness to work closely with Pakistan’s new leadership to devise policies aimed at macroeconomic stabilization. This gesture is a vote of confidence in the country’s economic direction, further underscored by the Fund’s commendation of the caretaker government’s strict adherence to fiscal discipline and its efforts to protect social safety nets.
