USA Senate Foreign Relations Committee says that Any IMF agreement with #SriLanka must be contingent on Central Bank of Sri Lanka ‘s independence, strong anti-corruption measures & promotion of the rule of law. Without these critical reforms, Sri Lanka could suffer further economic mismanagement & uncontrollable debt.

This has been stated in a response to IMF tweet which says that “the aim of the new IMF program is to restore economic stability and debt sustainability, while protecting the most vulnerable, safeguarding financial stability & stepping up reforms to address corruption vulnerabilities so that Sri Lanka can meet its full potential.”
