“Rupee’s decline can only be stopped if imports are curtailed, and exports/remittances increase,” Malik Bostan, Chairman Forex Association of Pakistan, said on September 10.

Capital Stakes, a financial research company, tweeted that the Rupee was about 34 paisas away from its all-time low of Rs. 168.4353 against the USD.

However, against other major currencies, the Rupee managed to gain strength. The local currency appreciated 88 paisas against the Euro, 1.02 rupees against the Pound Sterling (GBP), 65 paisas against the Canadian Dollar (CAD), and 66 paisas against the Australian Dollar (AUD).

It lost 2 paisas each against the Saudi Riyal (SAR) and the United Arab Emirates Dirham (AED).
