Pakistan secures $8bn package from Saudi Arabia

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has secured a “sizeable package” of around $8 billion from Saudi Arabia, including doubling of the oil financing facility, additional money either through deposits or Sukuks and rolling over of the existing $4.2 billion facilities during the visit of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.

“However, technical details are being worked out and will take a couple of weeks to get all documents ready and signed,” top official sources privy to the development informed The News on Saturday. Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and his official entourage have left Saudi Arabia but Minister for Finance Miftah Ismail is still staying there to finalize the modalities of the increased financial package.
