The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has agreed to provide Sri Lanka with an initial loan of $2.9 billion to deal with the economic crisis. On Thursday (September 1) the International Credit Union.

The loan is being given under the extended credit facility for a period of four years, the IMF said.

The Corona pandemic, the inefficiency of the government in managing the national economy, the increase in the price of energy around the world and the foreign exchange reserves in the state treasury have fallen to the bottom have created a disastrous situation in Sri Lanka.
