Economic Forecast

GDP growth is expected to moderate from 7.1% in FY2019 to 5.3% in FY2020 for several reasons, notably the global outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic. The nationwide lock-down imposed from 24 March to 7 April and its subsequent effects mainly on industry and services and potential fall in remittances will undermine growth prospects. Lower agricultural output, in particular of rice, which supplies nearly 7% of GDP will also dampen growth prospects.
