July 4, 2006 (LBO) – Sri Lanka’s budget deficit for the four months to April rose to 3.2 percent of GDP from 2.9 percent of GDP a year before as the government spent more on capital expenditure and salary increments for civil servants and subsidies, the Finance Ministry said Tuesday. The government raised about 100 million on a net basis from a 300 million dollar bond from domestic NRFC units in June, transferring dollars from private reserves to official reserves.
