SriLanka is likely to attain the per capita income of US$7500 in six years. This was announced by the Central Bank Governor, Ajith Nivard Cabraal, who claimed that with realistic economic trends, this mark could be achieved even before six years. Cabraal is certain that Sri Lanka will be “a much sought after country by both investors and even for employment.”
Although he admitted that the public debt is high – at 58 percent – he claimed that it is declining and the government of Sri Lanka is trying to bring it down to 3 percent by 2016. Sri Lanka’s economic stability and low inflation has also been endorsed both locally and globally as the Central Bank has claimed that it has received a positive response to the treasury bonds issued for 30 years.
