Sri Lanka and ADB

In the Spotlight

Sri Lanka is entering a new stage of development and, within a few years, will be ready to reach upper-middle-income status. The country’s new government - which was formed following the presidential and general elections in January 2015 and August 2015, respectively - is focused on inclusive growth, good governance, and private sector development.

The ADB interim country partnership strategy for Sri Lanka includes the agriculture, natural resources, and rural development as priority sectors to strengthen the country's drive toward inclusive growth.

Sri Lanka is a member of the South Asia Subregional Economic Cooperation (SASEC) program.
