Increase/Decrease of Dollar Rate in Pakistan

We will talk about appreciation and depreciation of Pakistani currency against the US dollar. The first thing that comes in our mind is whether appreciation and depreciation of a currency truly depicts the economic condition of a country? When we talk about depreciation and appreciation of the currency, the former tends to reduce the cost of a country's exports and rendering them more competitive in the global market.

This in turn, increases the cost of imports as a result the domestic consumers are less likely to purchase them, further strengthening domestic businesses. It can have negative consequences, i.e. increasing the import prices and exports become cheaper and higher exports relative to imports can increase the aggregate demand which can lead to higher GDP and inflation.
