KARACHI:


Foreign exchange reserves held by the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) increased 0.2% on a weekly basis on June 19, according to data released by the central bank on Thursday. SBP’s liquid foreign exchange reserves increased $32 million during the week to stand at $12,316 million as opposed to $12,284 million in the preceding week.


Total liquid foreign reserves held by the country, including net reserves held by banks other than the SBP, stood at $17,457.1 million while net reserves held by banks amounted to $5,141.5 million.


In April, foreign exchange reserves held by the SBP increased 5.1% because of the receipt of HBL’s privatisation proceeds.


Reserves went up by almost 4% in April following the receipt of $538 million from multilateral, bilateral and other sources, including $498 million from the IMF.


They increased significantly in February when the SBP got $717 million on account of the Coalition Support Fund.
