UNP parliamentarian Harsha De Silva said he did not understand why the IMF did not point out flaws in Sri Lanka’s economic system as mentioned by the Standard & Poors (S&P) rating services.
“I don’t know why the IMF didn’t point this out in its report as clearly stated in the S&P report. Just like what the S&P has done by pointing out the flaws in Sri Lanka’s banking system, the IMF should have also done so,” Dr. De Silva said.
In its most recent ratings in the ‘Banking Industry Country Risk Assessment’, the S&P rated Sri Lanka as belonging to the ‘very high risk category”. (Hafeel Farisz & Nishan Casseem)
May be IMF considering it as an 'internal matter'.

They do not care about SL economy, they only care if SL pay the capital and interest. Why should worry about SL? It is SL has to take care of her economy.

well IMF has mentioned that our banking system remains strong except for NPL (Non performing loans) & s&p total opposite.interesting... seems like IMF is also forgetting its ethics after negotiating with our country.
