The Ministries of Finance, Development Strategies and International trade and Trade and Commerce and the Central Bank will, within a week, decide on the steps to be taken to keep the rupee stable in the wake of the global economic crisis, sources close to Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said yesterday.

They said he had directed the three ministries and the Central Bank to work out strategies to minimize the effect on Sri Lanka from the fallout of US sanctions on Iran and the trade war between the USA and China.

The sources said these strategies would be implemented no sooner the Prime Minister returned from Norway.

Meanwhile, the economic experts have informed the government that Sri Lanka’s tea exports might come to a standstill when the US sanctions become effective in November this year and that China was unlikely to lend funds to Sri Lanka as a result of high tariffs imposed on its exports by the US.

    To do that you need a long term plan and a national policy. You cannot just ask people to change their behavior and buying patterns because country is in short term crisis.

    After aiding and abetting the biggest bank heist which no doubt contributed to the present crisis he is trying to be a hero. He should be held accountable for the debacle.

    Sunil Tuesday, 02 October 2018 02:00 PM

    Not just aiding and abetting, but actively supporting.

    Unchikun Tuesday, 02 October 2018 12:10 PM

    “ No sooner the prime minister returns from Norway” . Why is this man in Norway where the country is reeling in a economic mess. The global trotting in full swing?
