Pakistan and IMF reach $3 billion standby agreement | Inside Story

The IMF and Pakistan have reached an agreement on $3 billion standby agreement as the country nears default on its international debts.
Dwindling foreign reserves and a fall in the value of the rupee is fuelling soaring inflation.
Political chaos has scared off foreign investors.
And last year’s devastating floods have added to the many challenges facing the country.
Many hope the IMF stand-by deal will offer some relief and prevent it from going into default.
