Pakistani Rupee weakened against the US Dollar


The rupee weakened against the dollar at Rs166.17 in the inter-bank market on Monday compared with Friday’s close of Rs165.97, according to the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP).

Earlier, the SBP let the rupee depreciate massively in the inter-bank market after finalisation of an agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for a loan programme on May 12, 2019.

The IMF has asked Pakistan to end state control of the rupee and let the currency move freely to find its equilibrium against the US dollar and other major world currencies.
