On the other hand, Pakistan’s current account deficit has narrowed to 39% month-on-month to $623 million in April on the back of historic high workers’ remittances and a reduction in the import bill.

“Current Account Deficit shrunk to $623mn, on Apr 22; only two-thirds of Mar22 deficit of $1015mn. A rise in workers’ remittances (by $315mn) & a fall in imports (by $246mn) explain this reduction. Cumulatively, CAD reached $13,779mn during Jul-Apr FY22,” State Bank of Pakistan stated.
