The fourth round of devaluation to result in a fresh wave of inflation

Karachi, July 17, 2018 (PPI-OT): The Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI) on Tuesday said continued erosion in the exchange rate proves that the measures adopted to reduce demand of the American currency have not worked as expected due to uncertainty. The country saw the fourth round of devaluation as the rupee crashed to Rs129.4 to the greenback due to the gap in the demand and supply which is very unfortunate, it said.

Adjustment in the exchange rate, increased policy rate and other measures have not helped contain the nervousness that has resulted in high domestic demand of the dollar, said President FPCCI Ghazanfar Bilour. Increased exports and improved remittances have not helped to stabilise the forex reserves as expenditures remain much higher than the income, he added.

Ghazanfar Bilour said that the rupee has lost over 21 percent against the greenback as economic managers are becoming desperate to curtail a widening current account deficit and stop the slide of depleting foreign exchange reserves. The erosion in the exchange rate will result in a fresh wave of inflation which will hurt the masses and the business community, he noted.

The FPCCI President said that the policy of this high growth which was accompanied with a notable deterioration in the country’s balance of payments was flawed at best. The costly oil, other imports and weak rupee will hit the profit of the business community which will result in unemployment and low revenues.

He lauded the caretaker government which has started preparations so that the elected government can approach IMF for another bailout package but said that masses should be taken into confidence about repeated devaluations. The former government should have reached to the IMF for a loan to save the economy but it was avoided for political reasons which resulted in the economic turmoil, he observed.

Regulating imports can help save billions of dollars

Islamabad, July 17, 2018 (PPI-OT): Islamabad Chamber of Small Traders on Tuesday said liberal import policy has pushed trade deficit to new heights creating serious problems for the country. Regulating unnecessary imports could have helped the country save billions of dollars which would have helped the government, it said. Now, the government should immediately slap tariff and non-tariff barriers on useless imports to save the foreign exchange reserves which are depleting at a fast pace, said Patron Islamabad Chamber of Small Traders Shahid Rasheed Butt.

Unabated imports resulted in a bill of over 55 billion dollars in the eleven months of 2017-18 which shook the foundations of the economy. Imports during this period remained 21.35 billion dollars enough to pay for 38.7 percent of the import bill and leaving a huge deficit, he added. Shahid Rasheed Butt said that country imported petroleum products worth 13 billion dollars while 19.3 percent of the import bills went to machinery and import of agricultural and chemical products grabbed 14.7 percent share.

The business leader said that cotton imports remained 915 million dollars while edibles worth 5.72 billion dollars were imported in which edible oil and tea remained prominent. Pakistan despite being top milk producer imported milk and its products 252 million dollars. Import of pulses remained 483 million dollars.

He said that the import of petroleum products and machinery etc. are necessary but the food group imports can be controlled which will reduce demand for the dollar. The government should encourage local production of food and other products to cut the import bill, he demanded.
