Welcome to USD to PKR:
IF we delve into a bit of details regarding the USD to PKR exchange rate, it’s no news that the USD has always dominated the PKR by a large margin. In fact during the past decade it’s difficult to determine a point where the 1 Dollar to PKR Forex was ever below USD1:PKR100.
Will the Dollar to
Pakaistani Rupee ever devalue? Part of the reason is also that is due to
our adverse balance of payments, which has an ever increasing import
bills (USD to PKR) of
more expensive finished goods and luxury items rather than capital
machinery or skills against declining exports which are mainly based on
low value agriculture products rather than finished goods and that too
in an era where technology/IT products and services are higher value
with a more elastic supply chain. Whilst Pakistan has one of the largest
supply of IT services exports on low value high population natured
services, the truth is that this potential and the relevant amount of
exports to date remains untapped. Not only is the government not
encouraging and establishing a proper infrastructure for such IT related
services, but also the existing law fails to recognize a large scope of
these services due to outdated laws, hence forcing people to keep all
their money earned through this outside the country and such services
not even being included under the scope of exports.

favorable trade policies globally have had a significant reflection of
these strengths in their currency, which have become predominantly
stronger and have an advantage and protection against devaluation due to
purely domestic pressures, thanks to the significant demand overseas as
well. A great example for this can be the US Dollar ($) which has stood
