KARACHI: There is need of synergy between the finance ministry and State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) for declaring exchange rate on high demand of the foreign currency.

Malik Bostan, President, Forex Association (FAP) stated this and explained that in case there was mounting demand for the greenback the finance ministry and the central bank should declare the figures.

He suggested the government that instead further devaluation of Pak Rupee the government should focus on creating conducive environment for foreign and domestic investment.

He said that the government should conduct an inquiry into the latest spike in rupee value, which had fallen to record low on Friday November 30.
