Controls on commercial transactions and investment instruments

On 12 May 2011, the State Bank of Pakistan increased the foreign exchange exposure limit of authorized banks from Rs. 2000 million (USD 17 million at the time) to Rs. 2500 million (USD 23 million at the time). The total exposure can however be only up to 20% of the paid-up capital of the banks. This change in policy may allow banks in Pakistan to finance more cross-border trade and investment.
