Sri Lanka central bank maintains policy rates

The Central Bank of Sri Lanka on Aug. 3 decided to maintain its policy interest rates at their present levels. It kept the standing deposit facility rate at 7.25% and the standing lending facility rate at 8.75%.

The bank said the Sri Lankan economy is estimated to post a "modest" recovery in the coming quarters following "low" first-quarter growth.

Inflation is expected to ease further toward the end of 2017 and stabilize thereafter due to the tight monetary policy, which has been in place since 2015-end.
