Pakistan Foreign Exchange Reserves maintain $20 billion level despite repayments
The foreign exchange reserves held by the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) fell 0.45pc on a weekly basis, according to data released by the central bank on Thursday.
On February 12, the foreign currency reserves held by the SBP were recorded at $12,889.7 million, down $59 million compared with $12,949.1 million in the previous week.
