The Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD) has formalized an amount of US$3 billion to the State Bank of Pakistan with an aim to support Pakistan’s economic growth and to achieve the long-term objectives of its monetary policy.

According to WAM news agency, the decision to formalize the deposit was made under the directives of Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, president, and Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, crown prince of Abu Dhabi and deputy supreme commander of the UAE armed forces. Mohammed Saif Al Suwaidi, director general of ADFD, and Tariq Bajwa, governor of State Bank of Pakistan, signed the agreement at ADFD Headquarters in Abu Dhabi.

Moazzam Khan, ambassador of Pakistan to UAE, Khalifa Al Qubaisi, deputy director general ADFD, and other senior representatives of the two parties attended the signing ceremony.

Speaking on the occasion, Saif Al Suwaidi said, “The directive to deposit US$3 billion with State Bank of Pakistan aligns with UAE leadership’s keenness to bolster Pakistan’s economy, help its government achieve financial stability and overcome economic challenges, and drive comprehensive development in the country.” “ADFD and the government of Pakistan have enjoyed strong and long-standing ties dating back to 1981. The Fund’s efforts have significantly contributed to improving socio-economic conditions in the country, boosting strategic growth and achieving the development priorities of the Pakistani government,” he added.
