Pakistan gets $2.75 billion from IMF under SDR programme

Pakistan on Tuesday received $2.75 billion from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) under a Special Drawing Rights (SDR) programme to support low-income countries hit by the coronavirus, its central bank said.

The funds, part of a $650 billion global programme, will shore up Pakistan’s foreign reserves, under pressure from a rise in the current account deficit and falling remittances from workers based abroad.

Pakistan has reported more than 1.1 million coronavirus cases and more than 25,000 pandemic-related deaths.
