The International Monetary Fund will initiate discussions with Sri Lankan authorities for new support & financial program in the coming days, IMF spokesperson Gerry Rice said on Thursday.
“The Sri Lankan authorities have expressed interest in an IMF support and financial program. The answer is yes. On the status of that discussion, we plan to initiate those program discussions with the Sri Lankan authorities during the Finance Minister’s visit to Washington in April,” he said.
“So, we plan to initiate those discussions pretty much in the coming days and that will include the expected visit of the Finance Minister of Sri Lanka to Washington for our spring meetings in April.”
