Inflation in Pakistan
Pakistan - InflationAfter a provisional GDP estimate for FY 2020 (July 2019–June 2020) pointed to a modest contraction in output—due to lockdown measures at the tail end of the fiscal year dragging on activity—the economy seems to be recovering robustly at the outset of FY 2021. In July, industrial production posted its first expansion since December 2019, while a rise in cement sales pointed to upbeat construction activity. Furthermore, worker remittances surged in July–August as lockdowns eased globally, which, coupled with easing inflationary pressures, bodes well for private consumption. Less positively, after rebounding in July, exports dived in August as monsoon rains caused widespread supply chain disruptions. Nevertheless, the fall in exports was markedly softer on average in July–August compared to the previous quarter, signaling healthier external demand.
