KARACHI: Net foreign direct investment into Pakistan rose 3.8 per cent in the nine months that ended in March to reach $622 million, compared to a year earlier, the State Bank of Pakistan said on Tuesday.

Between last July and March, there was an inflow of $1.591 billion and outflow of $969 million, the central bank said.

In the year earlier, there was an inflow of $1.589 billion and outflow of $990 million.

The State Bank said the slight improvement in foreign investment was due to inflows of US military support in the form of Coalition Support Fund(CSF).

During March, net foreign direct investment rose to $117.5 million from $40 million a year earlier.
