People in Pakistan urged to drink fewer cups of tea.

People in Pakistan have been asked to reduce the amount of tea they drink to keep the country's economy afloat.

Sipping fewer cups a day would cut Pakistan's high import bills, senior minister Ahsan Iqbal said.

The country's low foreign currency reserves - currently enough for fewer than two months of all imports - have left it in urgent need of funds.

Pakistan is the world's largest importer of tea, buying in more than $600m (£501m) worth last year.

Business traders could also close their market stalls at 20:30 to save electricity.
