More IPS Research Made Available For Free Download: SOE 2011 and 2012 Policy Briefs

In our effort to expand the knowledge on socio-economic policy issues in Sri Lanka and enable greater access to IPS research, we are pleased to announce that the Policy Briefs of the 2011 and 2012 editions of the IPS annual flagship publication ‘Sri Lanka: State of the Economy’ (SOE) are available for free download. Now you can easily read online or download the e-version of these publications, which were earlier available only in print version, for sale at the IPS and leading bookstores.


Word Cloud 1Together with our earlier release of Policy Briefs from 2005-2010, the IPS has made available close to 500 pages of economic analysis, policy discussion and insightful commentary for free download and sharing. This collection of independent analysis would be invaluable resource material for economists, researchers, public and private sector officials, students interested in socio-economic issues, country analysts, foreign and domestic investment advisory firms, foreign diplomatic missions, local and international development agencies and development practitioners. It would also provide an interesting and informative historical backdrop against which the current scenario on each of these areas can be explored and debated.
