Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan has issued instructions allowing registered Afghan refugees in Pakistan to open bank accounts and participate in the country’s formal economy.

"I have issued instructions today that Afghan refugees who are registered can open bank accounts and from now onwards they can participate in the formal economy of the country. This should have been done a long time ago," the Prime Minister said in a tweet posted on his social media handle.
