Rupee value at lowest level, increasing economic difficulties

ISLAMABAD: Economic difficulties have increased as the value of rupee has fallen to the lowest level.

The Pakistani rupee has been depreciating at the lowest level against all other currencies since the beginning of this year in January when the currency was left to be determined by the market. The currency index currently stands at 84.6.

According to the index, if a currency stays between the level of 95 to 105, then it is devalued, that is, at that time the rupee is far behind its original value, in which case additional income comes in the form of exports. However, imports are discouraged. According to the Central Bank of Pakistan, the Real Effective Exchange Rate (REER) of the Pakistani rupee, compared to other currencies, further depreciated by 7.52% during February and was 86.00% in the index. 4 has reached the level while during January it was at the level of 93.96. By the end of the business day on February 28, one dollar was worth 261 rupees 50 paisa in the interbank market.

On the auspices of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the government of Pakistan introduced a market-fixed system in January, after which the rupee became unstable and overvalued due to the lack of dollars in the market. There was a decline and the dollar reached its highest level on February 2 when one dollar was equal to 285 rupees 9 paise.

Yusuf Rahman, head of research at Khadim Ali Shah Bukhari Securities, told Express that according to the REER, the Pakistani rupee is below its original value, but due to rising inflation, there are chances of improvement in this index in the next few months. .

He said that the rate of inflation in the country was 31.5 percent during February, which was the highest in fifty years, but there is a possibility of further increase in this rate and reaching 35 percent in March.

He further said that the reasons for this increase include the implementation of new taxes worth 170 billion rupees by the government, besides the increase in the prices of petroleum products, increasing the general sales tax from 17 to 18 percent and all these measures came. Done on the instructions of MF.

Yusuf Rehman said that the weakness should have been in exports due to the rupee, but due to the partial ban on imports and the enormous decline in the value of the rupee, inflation and the increase in interest rates, it was not possible to increase exports much. Most of the exports are to America and European countries, but due to the economic slowdown and reduction in the purchasing power of the people, the demand for export goods has decreased in their local market.

Yusuf Rehman said that Pakistan can be taken out of the economic and financial crisis only through the restoration of the IMF program, but it will take time because for the restoration of this program, Pakistan is assured of 6 to 7 billion dollars of loan from friendly countries. It will take decades.

Economic analysts say that if the IMF program is restored, the value of one dollar can be equal to 275 rupees.

Why are large numbers of immigrants choosing Canada?

Last year, 40,000 immigrants crossed Canada’s borders for asylum.
Some of these immigrants are moving to Canada under the impression that Canada is more lenient with immigrants than the United States.
But can Canada cope with this growing number of immigrants?
Wrexham Road is very quiet and cold in winter. The silence is broken by the screeching sound of the tires of a car driving on snow.

Every day, 150 immigrants are brought here who want to set foot on Canadian soil. Many of them started their journey from Brazil and then reached New York.
Roxam Road is not an official border point. There are no border agents here. There are only police officers who arrest border crossers.
However, it is known as a popular point for asylum seekers to enter Canada from the US.
Last year, a large number of immigrants entered Canada through this route. Immigrants flock to Canada because of Canada’s reputation for being soft on people affected by war and conflict.
On both sides of the border, there has been growing desperation about the influx of migrants from the Wrexham Road and the future of those arriving on the route.
Wrexham Road became the focus of national attention in 2017 when large numbers of asylum seekers began traveling the road.
Some believe that Canada’s sudden popularity among immigrants is due to the Trump administration’s fear of deporting immigrants from the United States.
Some blamed it on a tweet by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, which said Canada would welcome those fleeing persecution, terrorism and war.
Canada’s popularity among immigrants has alarmed Canadian officials.
Montreal’s Olympic Stadium has been converted into housing for newly arrived immigrants.
The federal government has warned that arriving in Canada is not a guarantee of staying there in order to stop this wave of immigrants.
The route has been closed under emergency health measures imposed by the federal government during the Covid pandemic, but the demand for safe haven has never ended.

The measures taken during the Covid epidemic, which were taken about 16 months ago, brought thousands of refugees to Canada.
Most of them are from Haiti, which has been plagued by political and violent events in recent months.
There has also been an increase in the number of people coming from Latin American countries such as Venezuela and Colombia or from remote areas such as Afghanistan.
At the same time, the Biden administration has expanded Trump-era pandemic policies that have been used to stop migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Migrants who spoke to the BBC in Quebec said they did not see the US as a good country for asylum, where asylum applications take years to be decided and they felt their arrival does not like
Joshua (pseudonym) arrives in Montreal two days after Christmas and lives in a rented flat with an immigrant. They are waiting for their asylum application to be heard.
Joshua, a Venezuelan citizen, had been living in exile in Chile for five years when he decided to move to Canada.
“Other countries are not so friendly with illegal immigrants, but Canada has welcomed them,” Joshua said.
Behind the influx of refugees is a 20-year-old agreement with the US called the Safe Third Country Agreement, which requires migrants to apply for asylum in their first ‘safe’ country.
Immigrants coming from the US to Canada on the day of the deal will be turned back at the border, but Roxam Road is an unofficial route and asylum seekers are trying to use that loophole.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has rejected calls to close the Roxam Road crossing, saying the US has thousands of kilometers of unmonitored border. He said closing the crossing would be futile and migrants would try to reach Canadian soil through dangerous routes.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is focused on renegotiating the Safe Third Country Agreement.
He is expected to raise the issue during President Biden’s visit to Canada later this week.
But the prime minister is under pressure to take steps to curb illegal immigration as the new arrivals strain civic amenities, particularly in Quebec, where many immigrants live.
Quebec Premier Francois Legault has described the situation in the province as unstable, saying social services have been “pushed to the brink of collapse” and some immigrants are facing homelessness as a result.
Decisions on asylum applications are being delayed due to an increase in asylum applications from immigrants.
The total number of immigrant applications in January 2022 was 56,300, up from 71,000 in December, a 26 percent increase.
Immigrant applications can now take up to two years to process. Last year, 28 percent of asylum applications were rejected, which means that arriving in Canada does not guarantee asylum there.
There is also a long wait for a work permit.
It used to take a week to get a social insurance number for a new refugee.
Maries Poisson, who works at the Welcome Center, an organization helping newcomers in Montreal, says the wait for an appointment for an ID document is now about two years.
Advocates have told the BBC that delays in decisions on migrant claims have left many migrants struggling to meet their needs and access food banks and other social assistance. .

“Some of them are in situations where they’re being exploited,” says Suzanne Tafot, a Montreal-based immigration lawyer.
“We are really concerned that the most vulnerable people, who have trauma, who don’t speak the local language, don’t get the support they need,” he said.
US border agents have noted an increase in the number of people returning from Canada.
In January, the U.S. Border Patrol arrested 367 people trying to cross from north to south, more than the total number of such crossings in the past 12 years.
Since then, Republican lawmakers have spoken of a “crisis” on the northern border.
People who work with refugees in Montreal say some who return do so because they can’t find work or visit family in Canada.

Despite mounting challenges in Canada, record numbers of migrants are crossing the Wroxham Road in Canada’s bitter cold.
Terry Provost and Tyler Tambini, taxi drivers in New York, say they often take people from the Plattsburgh bus station to the border.
“This man had no money,” said Mr. Provost while getting a refugee from Afghanistan out of the taxi. They were waiting continuously in a motel.
As the migrants cross the border, they are greeted by members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, who warn them that they will be arrested if they continue.
Since 2017, part of the Canadian border has been transformed into a small police compound, with trailers to process crossers and buses waiting to bring new arrivals to nearby hotels.
Mr Provost said he had seen people hesitate before taking the final step. They are not sure what will happen to them.
But for immigrants like Joshua, Canada is the last safe haven.
“The American dream died many years ago,” he told Shades of Galaxy. Montreal is my new home. It is my only home.
