The Saudi riyal (SAR) rate to the Pakistani rupee (PKR) remained stable at Rs. 75.37 on 9 October 2023, according to the State Bank of Pakistan. This is the same rate that was recorded at the start of the business day on 6 October 2023.
The stability in the SAR to PKR exchange rate is a positive sign for both countries, especially in light of the current global economic uncertainties. The global economy is facing a number of challenges, including the ongoing war in Ukraine, rising energy prices, and supply chain disruptions. These challenges have led to increased volatility in the global financial markets and have put pressure on currencies around the world.
Despite these challenges, the Saudi riyal has remained relatively stable against the Pakistani rupee. This is likely due to a number of factors, including the strong economic ties between the two countries and the Saudi government’s commitment to supporting the Pakistani economy.
