Investors are showing keen interest in sectors such as cement and steel, which remain favored for investment amidst the ongoing bullish sentiment. The slight downturn in inflation has rekindled hopes for a potential reduction in the high interest rates by the central bank.

Moreover, advancements in the government’s strategy to privatize State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) have bolstered the recent surge in the KSE-100 index.

Confidence continues to grow, buoyed by substantial progress in the privatization agenda and the influx of foreign portfolio investment into government securities.
