Sri Lankans will have to make reforms for longer-term growth and address immediate challenges in repaying debt as the country battles with a Coronavirus crisis with the economy set to contract in 2020, Pathfinder, a Colombo-based think tank said.

“In addition, there has been a loss in employment and an increase in poverty as in almost all countries,” Pathfinder said.
 
“The successful handling of the pandemic during April – September 2020 served to contain output and employment losses.”
