On June 20, an IMF delegation will visit Sri Lanka for talks.


The prime minister’s office announced on Friday that an IMF delegation will visit Sri Lanka on June 20 for talks as the country seeks a loan program from the lender to deal with its worst economic crisis in seven decades.

According to his office, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe “was hopeful that a staff-level agreement would be reached by the end of the month.”

The island nation of 22 million people is suffering from a lack of essentials such as fuel, cooking gas, and medicines after running out of foreign currency for even the most basic imports.
