Economic outlook 2014 SL will show all characteristics of growth of small developing countries: Dr. Kelegama In 2014, Sri Lanka will show all characteristics of growth of small developing countries as I mentioned above with IT services exports, tourism and remittances playing a role in overall growth. With close to 6 percent GDP public investment in physical infrastructure as announced in the 2014 Budget, the debt financed government-led growth with some spillovers to private sector activities like construction will be visible in the economy. Perhaps the growth rate will be between 7 percent and 7.5 percent a reasonably high rate from an Asian perspective. [Source: www.dailymirror.lk] Sri Lanka interest rates tighter ahead of dollar inflow Sri Lanka's overnight market rates and medium term bond yields picked up slightly ahead of an expected liquidity flood from a sovereign bond sale, dealers said. Excess liquidity in money markets dropped 12.9 billion rupees on Thursday from 53 billion rupees a week earlier, with the monetary authority withdrawing cash. Next week, proceeds of a billion US dollar bond are expected in the country. Liquidity will be generated from the bond in money markets to the extent dollars are sold by the Treasury to finance its domestic expenses. [Source: www.lbo.lk] Tea exports top $ 1.5 b target in 2013 Sri Lanka has succeeded in exceeding the target of $ 1.5 billion in tea exports in 2013. According to Sri Lanka Customs data analysed by Siyaka Research, tea exports in 2013 at 319 Mkg equalled the 2012 total. The Rupee value of exports however jumped 11% from Rs. 180 billion in 2012 to a record Rs. 199 billion in 2013. The approximate US Dollar value of exports of these earnings is a highest ever $ 1.558 billion. The previous record was the revised figure of $ 1.490 billion released by the Sri Lanka Tea Board in 2011, Asiya Siyaka Commodities Plc said. [Source: www.ft.lk] Sri Lanka remains vulnerable to tightening of global financial conditions: World Bank Despite high economic growth and low inflation, Sri Lanka remains vulnerable to tightening of international financial conditions due to its high external debt, the World Banks latest Global Economic Prospects (GEP) report, issued Tuesday, says. The external debt as a share of GDP is modest in most South Asian countries, but in Sri Lanka, it is close to 80% of GDP, according to the GEP report. Sri Lankas large current account deficit, high foreign debt, and openness to capital flows suggest that it remains especially vulnerable to tightening of international financial conditions.

China's growth expected to beat official target China's economy grew at a faster pace last year than the government's official target, according to a CNNMoney survey of economists. Gross domestic product grew by 7.7% in 2013 over the previous year, according to the survey's median estimate -- stronger than the government's target of 7.5%. But overall, China's economy is slowing after recording 7.8% GDP growth in 2012 and 9.3% in 2011. The economists estimated growth in the final quarter of 2013 slowed to 7.6% following a 7.8% peak in the third quarter. The Chinese government will announce official data on Jan. 20. [Source: www.money.cnn.com] U.K. Retail Sales Exceed Forecasts With 2.6% Christmas Surge U.K. retail sales rose more than economists forecast in December, led by a surge at department stores and smaller shops during the key Christmas season. Sales including fuel increased 2.6 percent from November, the Office for National Statistics said today in London. Thats the strongest December since records began in 1996. The median forecast of 22 economists in a Bloomberg News survey was for a 0.3 percent gain last month. Department stores posted a record 8.7 percent increase in sales. [Source: www.bloomberg.com]
