Pakistan - Current Account

The economy has had a mixed start to FY 2019, which began in July. In November, the Central Bank’s foreign exchange reserves were broadly steady after falling significantly in the preceding months. For its part, the large current account deficit narrowed slightly in July–October from the same period a year earlier, primarily due to higher remittances. These inflows helped outweigh a sharp rise in the merchandise import bill caused by higher oil prices. Meanwhile, security concerns were raised on 23 November when a Chinese consulate was attacked by militants.
