While the total remittances from the Gulf and Western countries amounted to about $ 2.3 billion in September 2020, according to data from the Central Bank of Pakistan.

At the end of last month, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan called on the G20 countries and international banks to extend the period of suspension of debt payments for developing countries for an additional year, with the aim of helping these countries recover from the repercussions of the emerging Corona virus pandemic.

And the US Bloomberg News Agency quoted Khan as saying that debt relief is one of the fastest ways to provide financial resources to developing countries.
