In 2020, the World Bank estimates that personal remittances sent to Pakistan by migrants amounted to 8.7 per cent of Pakistan’s GDP.

Factors Influencing the AED to PKR Exchange Rate

When it comes to the AED to PKR exchange rate, it is important to remember that the UAE dirham is pegged to the USD. This means the dirham to PKR exchange rate is subject to the same forces that influence the USD to PKR exchange rate.

One of the factors that can influence the AED to PKR exchange rate is the interest rates in the UAE and Pakistan. If the interest rate in the UAE is higher than in Pakistan, then this can make the AED more attractive to investors. This can cause the dirham to Pakistani rupee rate to rise.

However, if the interest rate in the UAE is lower than in Pakistan, then this can make the AED less attractive to investors.

It is important to note that, as a result of the long-standing peg between the US dollar and UAE dirham, the Central Bank of the UAE (CBUAE) typically adjusts interest rates in response to changes by the US Federal Reserve. By keeping interest rates in alignment with those in the US, CBUAE helps to stabilise the UAE dirham and avoid market volatility. In addition, this policy helps to discourage speculation against the UAE currency.

Oil and gas prices can also influence the AED to PKR exchange rate. Pakistan is highly dependent on imported fuels. Fuel prices are one of the main drivers of inflation in Pakistan. When the oil and gas prices go up, the prices of other goods and services also rise. A high inflation rate can damage a currency’s value and exchange rate.

Political instability can have a significant impact on a country’s exchange rate. When investors perceive a country to be politically unstable, they are less likely to want to hold its currency. This can lead to a decline in the value of the currency, as investors sell it off in favour of more stable currencies. In 2022, Pakistan was in political turmoil after a no-confidence motion against Imran Khan forced his removal as prime minister. This contributed to the PKR falling to an all-time low against the USD and AED.
