China Rolls Over $600m Loan to Pakistan

ISLAMABAD: China has rolled over a $600 million loan to Pakistan, helping to shore up the South Asian country’s foreign exchange reserves on the back of an International Monetary Fund deal, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said on Tuesday, according to Reuters. 

This was in addition to over $5 billion in loans that longtime ally China has rolled over for Pakistan in the last three months, Sharif said last week, helping Pakistan avert a default as negotiations to secure the IMF bailout dragged on.

Pakistan secured a last-gasp $3 billion IMF bailout on June 30, which later disbursed an initial upfront instalment of about $1.2 billion.
