If this data is correct, then Pakistan already does not import much "luxury " products. Looks like only bare minimum is being imported. Imports are already heavily taxed and import tax is a big part of revenue for govt. Banning luxury items will not have any noticeable impact on CAD. However if aggressive import bans are applied, tax revenues will be significantly hit .

Making import expensive will also lead to increase in the cost of goods that are used to produce exportable products. And create further barriers that incentivise firms to sell to a local captive market of 250 million , then to compete globally.

Very catch 22 situation. Managing CAD vs Fiscal Deficit.That too in commodity super cycle and friends unwilling to help. Your suggestion suddenly starts making some sense.
Remittances are also at historic highs already. Only non debt solutions for the CAD crisis that I can think of is a sudden inflow of FDI and FII. But neither global investment conditions nor Pakistani domestic political situation suggest the possibility for it 🤔

Any USA aid will go in the pockets of Corrupt Politicians and they know it, this is not AID for Pakistan but price for buying Political/Military/judges in Pakistan.
These sellouts may use just enough to legitimize their rule (delay their corruption), and then the rest - as they say - is history.

Loan

A burden for future generation of Pakistani

A chain

A shackle in feet of Youth



Where did 7-8 Billion Dollar vanish in 1 month it takes 1 year to use that amount
Look you have to give bags full of money to every day Pakistani to vanish 8 Billion Dollars in 30 days ,7-8 Billion dollar is the amount lasts 1 year budget for Province

Heard custom's record was removed ? was that rumor or the data just vanished what was being transported out ?
All the same for the past many decades. No questions asked. No suo motos. Just keep going.

Omg….This teenager whose never had a real or a honest job in his life is now your foreign minister lol
There are educated people with international exposure in the country who support this clown and his party. Any wonder why Pakistan is where it is?

Is it me or are Pakistanis selling themselves pretty cheap?

Air corridor / US bases in Pakistan achieve multiple objectives for USA.

Keep Afghanistan / Taliban / TTP/ other terrorist groups in check

Keeps a close eyes on China

Keeps a close eye on Central Asian Republics

Keeps Gwadar and natural resources in check

USA can create trouble in Balochistan with ease

USA can monitor Pakistan’s strategic assets

Heck for all this, Pakistani establishment is selling their ammis for a billion $? Bro, if you want to sell your imaan, then go all out.
Always have, always will.

The parliamentary political system and our Raj-inherited institutional design both create a specific type of leader and then incentivize specific behaviors. Can you imagine that several people, in and out of uniform (and in and out of politics), have made the argument that the country's not doing too poorly? This is because you're trained to only care about your tenure, post, etc., and earn your perks, privileges, pensions, and plots. Baaki sab bhaar mein jaey.

But has China offered any support to Pakistan currently?
They can't because our Civil/Military leaders and judges are sold to Washington, so any help from China will be useless because Americans can easily do a regime change in Pakistan which will hurt China's effort to revive Pakistan, we saw this only few weeks ago.

Well, there is CPEC, the miraculous game-changer, or so we are told.

well in their defense, CPEC was not given enough time to bear its fruits. Plus the Terrorism and poor Leadership cause CPEC to slow down, and I think American sponsor regime change is final nail in the coffin.

So the Iron Brother is not all that solid, it seems.
