Sri Lanka mulls national policy for economy after polls

June 17, 2015 (LBO) – Sri Lanka’s Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake said that the government plans to bring a national policy for the economy following the scheduled general election and the forming of a new government.

“A National policy needs to be brought in. At the moment it is still a fragile situation,” Ravi Karunanayake told LBO in an exclusive interview.

“So we will look at improving those things. We can’t decide a on national policy in 100 days. Those are in process, we will certainly debate and get it done,”

“At the moment the process is in motion.”

Sri Lanka’s new administration who took over on January 08th passed its mini budget on the same month, which critics described as “saradial budget”.

Business leaders were quoted as saying that the budget cannot be viewed as a direction of government policy on the economy or business environment.
