Sri Lanka could see its GDP contract by more than 6% this year amid the current political and economic instability, which is also hamstringing key discussions on financial relief with IMF and bilateral creditors. Years of economic mismanagement and poor policy planning have created an untenable situation in the country, with Sri Lankans struggling to source basic needs such as fuel, food and medicines and inflation running beyond 50%. We discuss much-needed economic reforms for Sri Lanka to make its way out of crisis with economist Anushka Wijesinha.
