KARACHI: The rupee strengthened against the dollar at Rs133.87/Rs134.06 in the inter-bank market on Tuesday compared with Monday’s close of Rs133.89/Rs134.08, according to the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP).
Last month, the rupee strengthened after Saudi Arabia agreed on a $6-billion assistance package for Pakistan. Earlier in October, a slump in the value of the rupee came after the government decided to knock at the IMF door to avoid default on import payments and debt repayments.
