Pakistan repays $260m to IMF


The government on Friday paid $260 million to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) as part of a loan repayment. The fresh payment was made to return money Pakistan borrowed under a bailout package signed in November 2008. The previous IMF repayment of $391 million was made at the end of May this year. Heavy debt repayments to the IMF have been putting a dent in the central bank’s reserves, which have declined by nearly 20% in the current fiscal year, putting pressure on the rupee. An IMF mission is currently in Islamabad to review the county’s ability to pay back its money in addition to negotiating a fresh bailout scheme.


  1. Keep on Making payment to IMF till all the loan is paid.
    In the mean time control the imports so there is not much deficit
