IMF staff plans to visit Colombo ths week

An IMF Staff delegation led by Peter Breuer and Masahiro Nozaki plans to visit Colombo during August 24-31 to continue discussions with the Sri Lankan authorities on economic and financial reforms and policies.

“The objective is to make progress towards reaching a staff-level agreement on a prospective IMF Extended Fund Facility (EFF) arrangement in the near term. Because Sri Lanka’s public debt is assessed as unsustainable, approval by the IMF Executive Board of the EFF program would require adequate assurances by Sri Lanka’s creditors that debt sustainability will be restored,” IMF noted.

The Central Bank of Sri Lanka (CBSL) expects to sign the Staff-level agreement EFF program during this occassion.
