IPS Executive Director, Dushni Weerakoon, was a panelist at the session discussing the ‘Impact of Budget Proposals on Economy’ at the event, ‘Budget Highlights 2019: Tax Proposals and Impact on Business and the Economy’, organised by the Institute of Certified Management Accountants of Sri Lanka, on 11 March 2019 in Colombo.

Dr. Weerakoon observed that while budget formulation has clearly shown restraint in a critical election year, Sri Lanka is caught up in a very tight macroeconomic environment where growth remains low and the country’s debt outlook faces significant challenges.
