KARACHI (Reuters) - Pakistans foreign exchange reserves fell slightly to $17.47 billion in the week ending June 25, from $17.52 billion a week earlier, the State Bank said on Thursday. Reserves held by the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) fell to $14.02 billion from $14.11 billion a week ago, while those held by commercial banks rose to $3.45 billion from $3.41 billion, the SBP said in a statement. Pakistans forex reserves have grown steadily thanks to higher export proceeds, as well as record inflow of remittances, hitting an all-time high of $17.95 billion during the week that ended on March 26. Reserves have since eased slightly on debt repayments. Remittances sent by overseas Pakistanis crossed $10 billion for the first time, hitting $10.1 billion in the first 11 months of the 2010/11 fiscal year, an increase of 25.20 percent compared with the same period last year, according to SBP data. Foreign exchange reserves were boosted in January by more than $633 million when the United States provided funds for military and logistical support for Pakistans campaign against Taliban insurgency. In May 2010, Pakistan received $1.13 billion in the fifth tranche of an $11 billion International Monetary Fund (IMF) bailout programme. Pakistan and the IMF ended talks last month in Dubai to discuss budget targets for 2011/12 fiscal year. They are due to meet again in July to discuss the possible release of the sixth tranche.
