Sri Lanka and the IMF
Updated April 29, 2016

On November 13, 2015, the Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) concluded the Fourth Post-Program Monitoring (PPM) with Sri Lanka.

Post-Program Monitoring provides for closer monitoring (usually twice a year) of the circumstances and policies of members whose Fund-supported program has expired but that continue to have significant Fund credit outstanding. It is intended to provide an early warning of policies which could call into question a member’s continued progress toward external viability and thus could imperil Fund resources, and a mechanism for bringing this to the attention of the country’s authorities and the Executive Board and stimulating action to improve the situation. IMF economists visit the member country, usually twice a year, to collect and analyze data and hold discussions with government and central bank officials. Upon its return, the staff submits a report to the IMF’s Executive Board for discussion. The Board’s views are subsequently summarized and transmitted to the country's authorities.

The Sri Lankan authorities have indicated that more time is required to give consent to publish the staff report for the Fourth Post Program Monitoring Discussion.



The last Article IV Executive Board Consultation was on May 01, 2013. Listed below are items related to Sri Lanka, in reverse chronological order (you can also view items by category).
