The move will also help avert pressure on the rupee-dollar parity in coming days and ensure to meet immediate needs of the PSO to import crude oil and LNG to be provided other companies, officials of Finance Ministry told. 

The government will borrow $900 million from International Islamic Trade Finance Corporation (ITFC) of the Jeddah-based Islamic Development Bank (IDB) to finance crude oil imports and $200 million from a local bank to import LNG. 

The ITFC an entity working under the IDB will lend the money under a short term Murabaha financing arrangement, said officials at the Ministry of Finance. 

The ITFC will raise the money on its books from international capital markets and then lend it to Pakistan, they added. The money will be received during this week to be paid to the Ministry of Water and Power which will pay to the PSO.
