Threat of situation like Sri Lanka
If experts are to be believed, then if Pakistan is not helped by the IMF, then no one can stop the situation like Sri Lanka. On August 5, the State Bank of Pakistan released the data, in this data Pakistan’s foreign exchange reserves have been recorded at $ 7830 million. This is said to be the worst level in Pakistan in the last three years.
Between July 29 and August 5, Pakistan’s foreign exchange reserves have seen a decrease of $ 555 million in about a week. If Pakistan’s foreign exchange reserves continue to decrease at such a record level, then soon Pakistan may be caught in a big economic crisis.
Debt became trouble for Pakistan
According to the Central Bank of Pakistan, there has been a decrease in the foreign exchange reserves in Pakistan because Pakistan is constantly taking loans from foreign countries. On the other hand, the State Bank of Pakistan has expressed hope that the debt repayment burden will be less in the month of August. The State Bank of Pakistan further said that about three-fourths of the loan has been repaid by Pakistan in the first week of August. For this reason, the debt burden is expected to remain low in the remaining weeks of August.
Pakistan is heavily indebted to China
According to the people who have knowledge in international affairs, the reason for the poor condition of Pakistan is corruption on one side and political instability on the other side. Even if a government comes to power, it cannot complete five years. The country is continuously getting buried under the economic debt. To overcome this, the Pakistan government has also taken a huge loan of $ 2.3 billion from China. However, the government did not disclose how high interest rates the government has taken loans. But it is so clear that as soon as the government’s treasury is getting empty, soon there may be an economic crisis in the country.
