The bullish trend in PKR’s value has been attributed to Ishaq Dar’s return, an advocate of a strong currency.
Since his arrival on Monday last week, the PKR has started flying high against the US dollar and has not yet seen a negative session.
Last week, the PKR posted an appreciation of 4.81% to close at Rs228.45.
