Future engagement with Sri Lanka to be decided after next review in mid-April: IMF

Feb 28, 2020 (LBO) – Sri Lankan authorities have expressed interest in a range of options for future engagement with the fund, the International Monetary Fund said.

Gerry Rice of the IMF Communications Department speaking at a briefing, however, said that the specifics of that engagement will be discussed after the next review in mid-April.

“The seventh and final review of the current fund supported program is scheduled to take place after mid-April and we will be looking at this situation then and thereafter,” he said.

“We have a long history of engagement with Sri Lanka of course.”
