For the first time in Pakistan’s history, $1 USD equals €1 Euro in Pakistan currency exchange markets after today’s crash of the Pakistani Rupee against the Euro and Dollar earlier this morning.What does this mean for Pakistan? Will the currency crash affect living standards? How will it affect current and future exports from or to Pakistan? Where does this leave Pakistan’s economy compared to other countries?


The story behind this historic day
On August 21st, 2018, the Pakistani rupee crashed to an all-time low against the US dollar. For the first time in Pakistan’s history,one dollar is now equal to one euro. This unprecedented event has sent shockwaves throughout the country, as businesses and citizens alike scramble to understand what this means for the future of Pakistan.


Economists are speculating that more severe devaluation may be on the horizon, which could lead to social unrest in the already volatile region.Businesses are panicking about how their bottom line will fare if imports become even more expensive, but the public at large is only concerned with how their day-to-day lives will change.


Will shopping abroad become easier or harder? How will locals adjust to paying twice as much for imported goods like clothes and electronics? Will overseas vacations suddenly seem like a good idea again?The answer depends on how long this instability lasts; if things return to normal within a year or two, then everything should return to normal soon enough.


If not—if currency fluctuations continue at their current rate—then there’s no telling what might happen next.Here’s what this means for youThe Pakistani rupee has hit an all-time low against the US dollar,


and for the first time in history, the dollar is now equal to the euro. This is a big deal because it means that Pakistan is now officially in a currency crisis.So what does this mean for you? Well, if you’re traveling to Pakistan anytime soon, your money will go a lot further than it did before. It also means that items imported from outside of Pakistan will become more expensive since they'll be converted into dollars or euros.


But with economic woes comes opportunity - especially for business owners who have international ties! If you have any investments in PKR,then make sure to convert them ASAP. And while the government claims that these changes won't affect everyday people's lives too much, we're not so sure. It'll take some time to see how everything plays out - but one thing's for sure: this crash is not good news at all!


How will businesses be affected?
Today, the Pakistani rupee crashed to an all-time low against the US dollar. For the first time in Pakistan’s history, one dollar is now equal to one euro.This will have a significant impact on businesses in the country. Prices for imported goods will increase, while Pakistani exports will become more competitive.


This could lead to a decline in foreign investment, as businesses become less confident in the Pakistani economy. The devaluation of the Pakistani rupee is expected to increase imports and reduce exports, leading to higher inflation and lower GDP growth.


The volatility of the currency also makes borrowing more expensive and hinders investors from taking out loans. Pakistan has been plagued by economic instability over the past few years due to political


unrest and economic issues such as a lack of trade agreements with China that would create jobs in developing sectors of the economy. If this trend continues,we may see further social unrest from frustrated citizens unable to cope with decreasing incomes and increased prices for essential items such as food staples like rice or wheat flour.


Here are our takeaways and thoughts
1. The Pakistani rupee has been in a free fall against the US dollar since December, and today it hit an all-time low2. For the first time in Pakistan's history, one dollar is now equal to one euro.


3. This is a big deal because it means that the country's currency is now worth less than half of what it was just a few years ago.4. Since Pakistan imports most of its goods from abroad, this will have a major impact on inflation levels, which are already high due to other factors such as energy shortages. 5.


Most importantly, this will be catastrophic for the country's export industry and its trade balance in general.6. Other countries with large trade deficits include India (14%), Russia (11%), Brazil (6%) and Canada (4%). 7.
