The Sri Lankan economy: charting a new course

Premachandra Athukorala, Edimon Ginting, Hal Hill, Utsav Kumar

    Research output: Book/ReportBook


    This is a pivotal period in Sri Lanka's economic development. The end of conflict opens a door for accelerated economic growth and poverty reduction. Reform is needed to regain momentum because fiscal imbalances and rising public debt could jeopardize macroeconomic stability. The economy would benefit from significant trade and commercial policy reform. The labor market suffers from sluggish growth of formal sector employment and from skills mismatches, which can be addressed by changes in education policy and systems.
