8 percent of the world’s unbanked adults live in 🇵🇰.
Insights from the Global Findex suggest Pakistan’s financial inclusion rate has continued to stagnate.

Pakistan houses 2.8% of the world’s population but makes up 8% of the world’s unbanked population. Draws questions on the regulator and banking sector as to why the growth in financial inclusion has remained stagnant.
اسلام آباد ائیرپورٹ پہ PIA سٹاف نے بتایا کہ PTI حکومت کےPM اور وزیر ہوابازی کے طیارہ حادثہ کے بعد غیر ذمہ دارانہ بیانات سے یورپ اور USA کی فلائٹس بند ہونے سے PIA کو اربوں روپے کا نقصان اور غیر ملکی ائیرلائنز کی چاندی ہو گئی۔کپتان نے ہر شعبہ برباد کیا اب آذادی کے درس دے رہے ہیں۔

For someone that has studied business and finance courses at Wharton, the best way to know about PIA losses would be the financial statements – not airline staff. Unless ofcourse, you’re looking for nuances and internal reasons for losses not covered in statements.

Who run the world? Dollars. You can take every necessary step to curb dollar outflows but the world will still find a way for you to cough them up.
13000 Amazon accounts banned from Pakistan. This is so frustrating. It’s one thing to have tried things and failed. It is another to just be fraudulent and scam global customers. This makes it so much harder for businesses trying to hit global markets.

13,000 accounts is no joke. Global perception is real when we talk about business. There is a need to rebuild consumer confidence globally. Acts like this won’t help.
Microsoft long ago figured out that the secret to succeeding in Enterprise software is making CIOs & CTOs happy, not end users.

$25000 is no joke. Maybe PR companies in Pakistan might be able to charge the rates they want now.

Sometimes panic sentiment gets the best of a situation.
What’s a 14% discount, if you really love your country give me 75% off.

14 August and 75th year of independence. A 75% off sale would be amazing. But then again, can brands afford that? More importantly, can you afford to spend more money while thinking you’re saving?
Mini-Budget on its way to fill following gaps ahead of IMF’s board on 29Aug
– 30bn supplementary grant to PSO
– 80bn providing electricity at 9 cents to exporters
– 40bn withdrawing fixed tax to appease traders
Now the challenge is either to increase taxes or cut expenditure 🤞

We keep coming back to the same problem every few days. How does one increase inflows and decrease outflows?
