今日7月15日に実行が期待されていたIMFローンは、またもや延期になった模様。

5月の貿易赤字は64%減少し、5ヶ月連続。

輸出による収入は、農作物が2.5%増加したにもかかわらず、全体としては27.8%減少。世界景気減速の影響で、主力の衣料品や宝飾品の大幅減少が主な原因。

来航者数は6月は前年同月比8.1%増加。今年度目標の年間来航者数50万人突破はほぼ確実な模様。

With regard to the IMF loan, things still seem to be on the fence.

Today is the 15th and it seems like Sri Lanka has not been included in the IMF’s agenda for July as per some local News papers. This is despite the comments made previously that the indicative date for the release of the loan will be somewhere mid July. Its difficult to state the timelines on when the country would actually get the loan.   

 

Sri Lanka’s trade deficit declined by 64% in May 2009 for the 5th consecutive month. In the meantime the Island’s cumulative trade deficit has decreased by 61.9% from USD 2,577 million within the same period in 2008 to USD 982 million in 2009 (5 months ended).

 

However Export earnings dropped by 27.8% in May 2009, despite agricultural exports growing by 2.5%.  The decrease is mainly due to the Textiles & Garments exports to the EU & USA declining by 17.9% & 29.4% respectively. This is a global impact whereby the major economies are having very low demand due to the recession.

 

Expenditure on imports has also decreased by 42.1% for the first 5 months ended this year.  

 

Tourist arrivals to the country has already increased by 8.1% in June when compared with a year ago. In 2008, Sri Lanka received 438,475 tourists despite the war. Hence exceeding the previous target of achieving 500,000 tourists in a calendar year is now looking mediocre.
