Sri Lankan authorities have expressed interest in a range of options for future engagement with the IMF but the specifics will be discussed after the next review in mid-April, the IMF said on Thursday.

Responding to a question at a news briefing whether there will be a new programme with Sri Lanka after the parliamentary polls this year, Gerry Rice of the IMF Communications Department said the seventh and final review of the current Fund supported programme is scheduled to take place after mid-April.

“We will be looking at this situation then and thereafter. We have a long history of engagement with Sri Lanka of course. During the recent staff visit, the authorities expressed interest in a range of options for future engagement with the Fund but the specifics of that will be discussed after this next review in mid-April,” he said.

    Be very careful and engage. IMF is not a very smart option. Inclusive Economic Outlook may be the way forward.

    With the US being the largest stakeholder in the IMF, recent govt actions may not augur well for the country!
