Sri Lanka Economy Stabilizing

Releasing the first review under the extended arrangement under the extended fund facility, the IMF said Sri Lanka made progress in structural reforms aimed at revenue mobilization and expenditure management, albeit with some delays. The Executive Board of the IMF on November 18 completed the first review of Sri Lanka’s economic performance under the program supported by a three-year extended arrangement under the Extended Fund Facility arrangement.  The arrangement was approved on June 3, 2016 to the amount of about SDR 1.1 billion ($1.5 billion).
