Pakistan’s Economic Rebound: First Surplus in Current Account After Six-Month Deficit Streak

In a significant turn of events, Pakistan’s current account has achieved a surplus for the first time in six months, signaling a positive shift in the country’s economic trajectory. According to the State Bank of Pakistan’s spokesperson, the national income has surpassed expenditures, contributing to this newfound financial stability.

This development comes on the heels of a remarkable 64% reduction in the annual current account deficit, offering a welcomed respite for Pakistan’s economy. Notably, November witnessed a surplus of $9 million, a stark contrast to the $184 million deficit recorded in October.
