Our recent expedition to Sri Lanka uncovered the nation’s unwavering spirit in the face of challenges. Our Asia team conducted due diligence, visited branches and countless clients.
Encountering various profiles in diverse sectors such as agriculture and tourism, they came across resilience and growth despite financial storms, signaling hope and possibility.
Beyond the professional insights gained, our team engaged in collaborative activities, fostering stronger bonds against the backdrop of Sri Lanka’s vibrant culture. These team-building experiences served as a testament to our shared commitment to impactful work.
Challenges are evident, from the financial storm faced by Non-Bank Financial Institutions (NBFIs) to the delicate balancing act of handling domestic debt restructuring. The government’s strategic moves, such as gradually releasing bans on imports, underscore a commitment to stimulating the local economy and overcoming supply chain disruptions.
Persisting challenges, from high borrowing costs to increased taxed to inflation are palpable, but the IMF support gained last March is starting to show some positive return, as demonstrated by the rating upgrade by Fitch Ratings provided last September.
In conclusion, Sri Lanka’s journey stands as a testament to adaptability and growth. The challenges faced underscore the need for sustainable solutions. In the face of adversity, Sri Lanka forges ahead, writing a new chapter of growth and hope.
