IMF approves $7.6-billion loan

WORLD BRIEFING / PAKISTAN

November 26, 2008|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

The International Monetary Fund agreed to a $7.6-billion bailout for Pakistan, though experts warned that the country remains at risk without more aid and reforms at home.

The IMF loan stopped the immediate risk of a currency crash and debt default.

The IMF said it would quickly disburse the first $3.1 billion to top up Pakistan's foreign currency reserves, enabling it to pay back bonds that expire early next year.
