During the week ended on 2-Dec-2022, SBP reserves decreased by US$ 784 million to US$ 6,714.9 million. This decline is on account of the payment of US$ 1,000 million against maturing Pakistan International Sukuk and some other external debt repayments. Some of the debt repayments were offset by inflows, mainly US$ 500 million received from Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB).
