KARACHI (Reuters) - Pakistans foreign exchange reserves rose to a record $17.30 billion in the week ending Jan. 22, up from $17.28 billion the previous week, the State Bank said on Thursday. Reserves held by the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) rose to $13.74 billion from $13.66 billion in the week ending Jan. 22, while those held by commercial banks fell to $3.56 billion from $3.62 billion, said the SBP. Analysts said it was because of a rise in remittances from overseas Pakistanis. According to official data, remittances rose 17 percent to $5.3 billion in the first six months of the fiscal year 2010/11 (July-June). Pakistans foreign exchange reserves were boosted this month by more than $633 million from the US for providing military and logistical support to fight militancy. In May, Pakistan received $1.13 billion the fifth tranche of an $11 billion International Monetary Fund bailout programme.
