On December 6, 2017, the Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) completed the third review of Sri Lanka’s  economic performance under a program supported by a 36-month extended arrangement under the Extended Fund Facility (EFF) arrangement. The Board’s discussion was based on a staff report prepared by a staff team of the IMF, following discussions with the officials of Sri Lanka on economic developments and policies underpinning the EFF arrangement.

The authorities have consented to publication of the staff report and it is expected that the report will be posted on this website shortly.
