“Pakistan too reeling under inflation”

Mumbai: Like India, Pakistan too is battling with rising inflation, and mulling steps to curb the prices of some key commodities, a top government functionary of the country said on Sunday.

“We in Pakistan too are deeply concerned over the inflation. Here, inflation is calculated on the basis of Wholesale Price Index, while in Pakistan it is done on the Consumer Price Index. We may be one point higher than India in terms of inflation,” Pakistan Planning Commission Deputy Chairman Salman Faruqui told PTI here.

Salman Faruqui, who is leading a high-power delegation to India, said that rising inflation would top the agenda of his meetings with representatives of finance, commerce and trade bodies. —PTI
