2020 Marks Highest Growth in Cash in Circulation During Eid-ul-Azha

The economic activity around Eid-ul-Azha is primarily cash-based. The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) publishes weekly reports regarding ‘cash in circulation (CiC).’

This week’s report indicated a multi-fold increase in CiC in percentage terms, going back nearly three weeks before Eid.

Renowned economist, Ammar Khan, took to Twitter to present a brief evaluation of cash in circulation, as shown by the SBP report.

In 2020, CiC growth during Eid-ul-Azha has been the highest, making it one of the more prominent cash-intensive events during a year, said Ammar.

The event effectively leads to a transfer of $1.5 billion-plus of wealth (cash) from urban to rural economy, having a massive multiplier and spillover effect.

Growth in spending during the event can be a leading indicator of improving incomes.

He wrote, “In last five years, CiC growth peaked in 2016, while lowest was in 2020 (lockdowns, et al.), against average of 0.3 percent.”

Looking at absolute cash numbers (excess of long-term average), economic activity during Eid-ul-Azha peaked in 2019 at Rs. 282 billion, while 2020 was a bad year.

However, in dollar terms, the best year was 2016 (overvalued PKR), and since then, it’s only been downhill.

Also, the analysis is about ‘cash in circulation,’ so the same cash is spent multiple times as you buy an animal, the seller buys something else, and cash keeps moving.

“Actual impact would be an easy three times of the excess cash circulating in the economy during the three weeks [in concern],” he said.

ADB Revises Growth Projections in Its Asian Development Outlook Report

The government of Pakistan estimated growth at 3.9 percent in fiscal year 2021, the improvement underpinned by strong growth in industry and services and steady remittance inflow, says the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

In its latest report “Asian Development Outlook Supplement”, the Bank stated that inflation in Pakistan averaged 8.8 percent in the first 11 months of fiscal year 2021 on rising global commodity prices, especially for food and crude oil.

The supplement to ADB’s flagship economic publication, Asian Development Outlook (ADO) 2021, provides updated projections for the region’s economies and inflation levels amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

ADB has projected 7.2 percent economic growth for developing Asia this year, compared with its 7.3 percent forecast in April, as renewed coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreaks slow the recovery in some economies in the region. The growth outlook for 2022 is upgraded to 5.4 percent from 5.3 percent.

Excluding the newly industrialized economies of Hong Kong, China, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, and Taipei, China, developing Asia’s updated growth outlook is 7.5 percent for 2021 and 5.7 percent for 2022, compared with earlier projections of 7.7 percent and 5.6 percent, respectively.

“Asia and the Pacific’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic continues, although the path remains precarious amid renewed outbreaks, new virus variants, and an uneven vaccine rollout,” said ADB Chief Economist Yasuyuki Sawada. “On top of containment and vaccination measures, phased and strategic rejuvenation of economic activities—for instance, trade, manufacturing, and tourism—will be key to ensure that the recovery is green, inclusive, and resilient.”

The COVID-19 pandemic remains the biggest risk to the outlook, as outbreaks continue in many economies. Daily confirmed cases in the region peaked at about 434,000 in mid-May. They narrowed to about 109,000 at the end of June, concentrated mainly in South Asia, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific. Meanwhile, the vaccine rollout in the region is gaining pace, with 41.6 doses administered per 100 people by the end of June—above the global average of 39.2, but below rates of 97.6 in the United States and 81.8 in the European Union.

East Asia’s growth outlook for 2021 is raised to 7.5 percent, from 7.4 percent in April, amid a stronger-than-expected recovery by the newly industrialized economies of Hong Kong, China, the Republic of Korea, and Taipei, China. The subregional growth forecast for 2022 is retained at 5.1 percent. The growth outlook for the People’s Republic of China is likewise maintained at 8.1% this year and 5.5% in 2022, amid steady performances by industry, exports, and services.

This year’s growth outlook for Central Asia has been raised to 3.6%, from 3.4% in the April forecast. This is mainly due to an improved outlook for Armenia, Georgia, and Kazakhstan—the subregion’s largest economy. Central Asia’s outlook for 2022 remains at 4.0 percent.

Projections for South Asia, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific for 2021 are lowered as renewed outbreaks are met with containment measures and restrictions, hampering economic activity. South Asia’s growth outlook for fiscal year 2021 is lowered to 8.9% from 9.5%. The forecast for India is downgraded by 1.0 percentage point to 10.0%. Southeast Asia’s 2021 outlook is revised to 4.0% from 4.4%, while the projection for Pacific economies is lowered to 0.3% from 1.4%. However, the 2022 growth forecasts for these subregions are upgraded to 7.0%, 5.2%, and 4.0%, respectively.

The inflation forecast for Asia and the Pacific this year is raised to 2.4%, from 2.3% in April, reflecting rising oil and commodity prices. The projection for 2022 remains at 2.7 percent, it added.

Govt Sets Rs. 27.15 Billion Export Target

The federal government has set an Rs. 27.15 billion export target for the current fiscal year 2021-22 in the proposed Strategic Trade Policy Framework.

Sources told Propakistani that the Ministry of Commerce has set a Rs 27.15 billion export target for the current fiscal year 2021-22 in the proposed STPF 2020-25.

The exports during the year 2020-21 amounted to Rs. 25.36 billion with major contributions of the textile sector, while the export target was Rs. 24.14 billion.

Sources said that MoC has finalized the Strategic Trade Policy Framework after addressing the reservations of the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) and the Federal Board of Revenue.

The central bank and Tax department raised certain observations in a meeting held in March, and sources said that MoC incorporated the views of SBP and FBR in the draft of STPF 2020-25.

The ECC deferred the approval last Friday, owing to the absence of the Advisor to Prime Minister on Commerce, Razzaq Dawood, and Secretary Commerce.
