The development comes against the backdrop of $1 billion of investment from the United Arab Emirates.

Pakistan is expected to receive the letter of intent (LoI) from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) before the weekend. 

The LOI would take Pakistan a step further closer to the release of two tranches worth $1.17 billion under a stalled loan facility.

 An update on the International Monetary Fund tranche, last week stated that Pakistan has met the last prior action of the global lender pertaining to the bailout package.

On the other hand, Pakistan Stock Exchange also showed positive momentum at the start of trading as the KSE-100 index had gained 632.51 points or 1.5% by 10:45 am to reach 42,728.75 points.
