Economic crisis in Pakistan affects its missions worldwide

The ongoing economic crisis in Pakistan has started to have ripple effects on its diplomatic missions across the globe. 

According to sources, the financial constraints being faced by the government have impacted the ability of Pakistani embassies to carry out their functions effectively.

In recent months, several Pakistani missions have reportedly faced a shortage of funds, leading to delayed payments of salaries and rent. In some cases, the missions have had to resort to borrowing money from local banks to meet their operational expenses.

The situation has also impacted the provision of consular services to Pakistani nationals living abroad. Reports suggest that many missions are facing difficulties in issuing visas and other travel documents due to a lack of funds.

The economic crisis in Pakistan has been fueled by a range of factors, including a large trade deficit, mounting debt, and a decline in foreign exchange reserves. The government has been forced to seek assistance from international financial institutions, such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF), to help stabilize the economy.

While Pakistan’s economy has shown some signs of improvement in recent months, the effects of the crisis are still being felt by its missions abroad.  The government will need to take decisive steps to address the financial challenges facing its diplomatic missions and ensure that they are able to carry out their duties effectively.
