Sri Lanka looking at trade, payments 'measures' to stabilize rupee: Finance Ministry


Nov 01, 2018

Sri Lanka says it is looking at 'external trade' and 'payment transactions," measures to stabilize the exchange rate, the finance ministry said as the rupee continued to slide amid sterilized intervention. 

"The measures to further consolidation of external trade and payment transactions are also being examined to provide much needed stability to the exchange rate," the finance ministry said.

It is not clear whether 'further consolidation' refers to additional trade, exchange, or remmittance controls. Sri Lanka has already placed import controls on cars and some other products.

Sri Lanka operates a soft-pegged exchange rate regime, involving sterilizing interventions with new money, which tends to bring further pressure to the exchange rate, analysts have warned. (Colombo/Nov01/2018)

Sri Lanka says budget targets could be met despite tax cuts

Nov 01, 2018 

Sri Lanka's finance ministry said budget targets could be met in 2018 despite tax cuts, announced Thursday, by trimming capital expenditure, after Mahinda Rajapaksa was appointed Finance Minister.

"..[The] government is confident that the primary surplus of 1.8 percent of GDP and the budget deficit of around 4.9 percent of GDP that have been targeted for 2018 could be achieved in support for further fiscal consolidation to provide economic stability," the Finance Ministry said.

Sri Lanka cut prices of fuel and slashed a number of taxes, raised the threshold on personal value added tax and lifted withholding tax on deposits.
A tax rate of 14 percent tax rate for agriculture businesses will be made available to individuals engaged in farming, bringing their rate down from 24 percent.

A concessionary tax rate of 14 percent on SME categories will be "extended to include individuals including those providing professional services," the statement said, brining the rate down from 24 percent.

The threshold for value added tax will be raised to 24 million rupees from 12 million for small businesses.

For wholesale and retail, the VAT threshold will be raised from 50 to 100 million rupees. 

Withholding tax on interest on deposits has been lifted.

Remittances will be exempted from tax. 

Telecom tax cut from 25 percent to 15 percent. 

"The necessary Gazettes for the aforementioned tax related proposals will be issued today and Cabinet approval is sought to amend the necessary tax laws," the Finance Ministry statement said.

In Sri Lanka though the parliamnet is in theory in control of finances, some import taxes are changed through midnight gazette by decree. The statement came as Sri Lanka is in the grip of a political crisis after President Maithripala Sirisena appointed Mahinda Rajapaksa as Prime Minister and Finance Minister and the parliament is suspended.

Economy needs national safeguards
11 November, 2018

Poor economic policies and shortsightedness in business decisions of the United National Party (UNP) have pushed the country backwards to a point of no return, says Dr. Indrajith Aponsu, Assistant Director of the Econsult Investment Services and Senior lecturer at the Department of Economics, Colombo University.

CSE THIS WEEK Z_p04-Economy1CSE THIS WEEK WAAACH5BAEKAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAICRAEAOw==

He said the economy needs national safeguards.

“This government has been in power since the beginning of 2015. During that period for various reasons the country’s economic situation started deteriorating. This was something which no one would have expected when this government took office in 2015. Historically, the UNP government has always been an investor friendly government. Ironically, what happened was the exact opposite,” Dr Aponsu told the Sunday Observer.

Citing possible reasons for the negative performance of the past regime, he said that the UNP had lost its focus from the start.

“Prior to the regime change the economy was doing well. During that time economic growth was on an upward trend recording seven per cent or more economic growth, infrastructure was in place, the war against terrorism was eradicated, foreign direct investors were keen on investing in Sri Lanka, inflation was decreasing and interest rates were on a low trajectory,” he said.

Criticising the economic policies that were adopted at the time, he said that the deterioration of the economy started under the UNP government.

He said that the price of a barrel of oil coming down to US$ 30 a barrel when the ÜNP government was in power, provided a de facto foreign exchange saving for the government which would have been enough for the government for the foreseeable future.

Calling the government’s decision to give public sector workers a Rs.10,000 increase was a mistake and he also said that under the 2015 government the country was managed according to social market economy policies.

During that time, the government was under pressure to curtail expenditure. But the government burdened themselves with roughly about Rs.13 billion extra expenditure on salaries every month.

“It was a massive burden on the budget, they couldn’t recover from that. It was additional salary expenditure of Rs.150 billion every year. The government could have constructed 50 first class hospitals with that money. It would have made a big difference to the society at large. The government’s decision to spend extra money on public sector salaries was an amateurish decision by the government. This extra burden on the government would continue until inflation discounts it in about five to ten years. According to economic theories expenditure brings aggregate demand. “Aggregate demand is where people are made to spend,” Dr. Aponsu said.

Commenting on the public sector salary increments he said that the salary increase was an injection towards only a particular sector of the society.

“This was disadvantageous towards other sectors of the society. Most of the public sector workers took loans to buy vehicles.

There was an influx of vehicles into the country which drained a huge chunk of foreign exchange. Much foreign exchange was spent on consumer goods. Car imports went up by about 150% in 2015. Indirect taxes were increased by the government. It was tough on the poor population,” he said.

Analysing how the UNP and the SLFP embroiled on a collision course, he said, the government lost the grassroots and everyone due to the coalition. Countries which record high economic growth have managed the markets. J R Jayewardene tried to have a blend between the open economy and managed economy. In between other rulers tried various methods. The 2015 government followed the open economy policy. This would have damaged the country.

“Sri Lanka has been a welfare economy from 1931 with a 90% literacy rate and the Sri Lankan economy is not a “South Asian economy” in that sense. The last government did not understand this.

The total free market concept has failed all over the world. The total free market policywhich was experimented in Latin American countries in the 70s and 80s failed to the extent that they have not yet recovered from those consequences,” Dr Aponsu said.

Agriculture is a sector which fluctutates every year but the worry was that the industry and services also deteriorated under the past government. Garments didn’t flourish despite the GSP+. You cannot raise cost structures of industries and then ask them to export. There are many countries which can compete with Sri Lanka. A future government should try not to score marks on financial policies and rectify issues in the economy.

Sri Lanka was not prepared for the U.S government’s increase of interest rates. The increase of interest rates is like a black hole or tsunami. It sucks funds from all over the world. So, anything that is invested here would simply go out.

The past government was caught off guard for that situation although they had the ability to collect much foreign exchange with the dropping of oil prices. The present government has a responsibility to stop the exchange rate drop. When the exchange rate is going up you cannot handle interest rates.

Central Bank reduced SRR & increased policy interest rates
14November 2018

Monetary Board of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka, at its meeting held on 13 November 2018, has decided to reduce the Statutory Reserve Ratio (SRR) applicable on all rupee deposit liabilities of commercial banks by 1.50 percentage points to 6.00 percent.


In order to neutralize the impact of this reduction and maintain its neutral monetary policy stance, the Monetary Board has decided to increase the Standing Deposit Facility Rate (SDFR) by 75 basis points to 8.00 percent and the Standing Lending Facility Rate (SLFR) by 50 basis points to 9.00 percent.

The Board said it arrived at this decision following a careful analysis of current and expected developments in the domestic and global economy and the domestic financial market, with the broad aim of stabilizing inflation at mid-single-digit levels in the medium term to enable the economy to reach its potential.

“The Monetary Board observed that large and persistent liquidity deficit in the domestic money market requires policy intervention,” the Central Bank said.

“The board decided to reduce the SRR applicable on all rupee deposit liabilities of commercial banks by 1.50 percentage points to 6.00 percent from the current level of 7.50 percent with effect from the next reserve maintenance period commencing 16 November 2018,”

“The reduction in SRR is expected to release a substantial amount of rupee liquidity to the banking system, thus reducing the cost of funds of banks.”

Moody’s downgrades Sri Lanka ratings to B2 amid political crisis

Nov 20, 2018 (LBO) – Moody’s Investors Service has downgraded the Government of Sri Lanka’s foreign currency issuer and senior unsecured ratings to B2 from B1 and changed the outlook to stable from negative.

The decision to downgrade the rating to B2 is driven by Moody’s view that ongoing tightening in external and domestic financing conditions and low reserve adequacy exacerbated most recently by a political crisis which seems likely to have a lasting impact on policy even if ostensibly resolved quickly, have heightened refinancing risks beyond levels anticipated when the rating agency affirmed the rating at B1 with a negative outlook in July.

Moody’s projections include a slower pace of fiscal consolidation than assumed in July to reflect disruption to fiscal policy implementation in a period of political turmoil.

Moody’s Investors Service said the stable outlook denotes balanced credit risks at the B2 rating level.

Moody’s expectation is that, despite the current political crisis, any future government will remain broadly focused on implementing important fiscal, monetary and economic reforms that would strengthen the credit profile over the medium term.

“However, Moody’s assessment is that the government’s debt refinancing will remain highly vulnerable to sudden shifts in investor sentiment in a period of further tightening in financing conditions and political and policy uncertainty, with limited buffers to face such risk,”

“Concurrently, Moody’s lowered the local-currency bond and deposit ceilings to Ba2 from Ba1. The foreign currency bond ceiling was lowered to Ba3 from Ba2 and the foreign currency deposit ceiling was lowered to B3 from B2.”

Unions, CB discuss EPF investments
Sunday 25 November

Amidst the doom and gloom in the country, there was some welcome news for Colombo’s stock market. The authorities are close to winning the unions over in the Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF) continued investment in the stock market, after a meeting on Wednesday between unions, affiliated to the National Labour Advisory Council, and Central Bank (CB) officials.

The CB team was led by Governor Dr. Indrajit Coomaraswamy and included deputy governors while the unions were led by JVP-affiliated Inter Company Employees Union President Wasantha Samarasinghe, which had requested the meeting to discuss the EPF vis-a-vis share market investments.

“It was a productive and positive meeting in the sense that this is the first time a Central Bank Governor has met the unions and clearly explained EPF investments,” Mr. Samarasinghe told the Business Times.

The EPF invests mostly in government securities, a small percentage in the share market and fixed deposits in banks. During 2010-2013, the Fund drew widespread criticism after investments in many loss-making companies in the stock market during the infamous pump-and-dump trades. In the past few years, new investments in the stock markets have been suspended owing to the dispute while stock market officials have urged the authorities to reconsider the suspension.

Industry officials welcomed the discussion. “The EPF must come back to the market as valuations are extremely attractive and there can be strict guidelines issued on investments for e.g. they can only invest in the S&P Top 20, etc,” said Ray Abeywardena, President Colombo Stock Brokers Association.

Mr. Samarasinghe said they were opposed to increasing the current portfolio of investments which is 4.23 per cent of total EPF investments to 8.5 per cent – without proper safeguards.

On the positive side the CB promised the unions to send them within two weeks the portfolio of EPF investments in the stock market while holding a meeting every six months with the unions as an ongoing discussion.

It was agreed that investment guidelines on EPF investments would be publicised on the CB website as a measure of transparency.
It was also revealed that so far the EPF has invested Rs. 84 billion in the stock market. CB officials had also said they were unaware or not officially informed of a proposal through the Asian Development Bank to increase EPF investments in the stock market.

Palitha Athukorala, President of the National Union of Seafarers Sri Lanka, also present at the discussion, described it as a positive meeting adding that while many unionists expressed confidence in the integrity of the Governor, they were “worried about people at the top (government politicians).”

He quoted the Governor as saying that they need to increase EPF investments as 83 per cent by law is invested in government securities while there is a limit to investing in fixed deposits in banks as that leads to excess cash in banks and inflationary trends.

“Speaking about transparent measures, the governor said special measures have been taken in which no mobile phones are allowed into the dealing room which also has CCTV,” Mr Athukorala said, adding that the authorities seem to have a convincing argument to invest more in the stock market.
It was also disclosed that before any EPF investment is made in the stock market, a research paper would be presented internally on the reasons to invest. The EPF is one of the largest funds in Asia.

Private sector leaders meet Sirisena, list serious concerns

4 December 2018


Leaders of the country’s private sector lobby groups met President Maithripala Sirisena yesterday, and expressed their growing concerns over the serious socio-economic impact of the current political crisis.

Those who attended the near 45-minute meeting included heads of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce (CCC), Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FCCISL), National Chamber of Commerce (NCC), Ceylon National Chamber of Industry (CNCI), National Chamber of Exporters (NCE), International Chamber of Commerce (ICCSL), Sri Lanka Apparel (JAAF), Chamber of Young Lankan Entrepreneurs (COYLE) and the Women’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry (WCCI).

Daily FT learns that a joint statement listing the areas of concern arising out of the political instability and sectors impacted was read out to President Sirisena, who gave a patient hearing. 

In response, Sirisena defended his recent actions, saying they were constitutional, but blamed both sides and the media for aggravating the crisis. The private sector leaders were also told that political or constitutional crises were not unique to Sri Lanka, nor the unruly behaviour of Parliamentarians, with a few international incidents cited. 

In his responses, Sirisena also asked the private sector leaders why they had not met him and raised concerns over the Bond scam.

In the first working day after Sirisena unseated MP Ranil Wickremesinghe from the post of Prime Minister and appointed MP Mahinda Rajapaksa in his stead, eight chambers of commerce or private sector lobby groups issued a statement expressing their initial concerns. Issued on 29 October, the statement said: “Concerned that the current political uncertainty will result in many adverse consequences to the country, if it remains unresolved. We request the political authorities to resolve issues through the democratically established institutions as early as possible. We appeal to the political parties to ensure that law and order prevails and that danger to the life and property of citizens is prevented. All parties should act in the best interests of our country, our people and the national economy.”

As the situation exacerbated, the private sector, though the chambers/lobby groups represented were reduced to 4 from 8, issued a fresh statement on 15 November. It said: “It is our view that the Executive and the elected representatives have a duty to ensure that decisions are taken with regard for due process and the rule of law.The events of the last few weeks have resulted in absolute instability, which is a situation that Sri Lanka simply cannot afford. This will no doubt hinder development and have a significantly adverse impact on the social and economic trajectory of our country. 

“It is observed that the entire administration of this country has come to a standstill and the public officers are paralysed, being unable to discharge their functions. The ultimate victims are the people of our country.

“We recently witnessed the most unacceptable and abusive behaviour displayed in the Chamber of the Sri Lanka Parliament. The conduct of some of the elected representatives was both shameful and an embarrassment to our country. We call upon all those responsible to accord the highest priority to national interest and refrain from pursuing any path that will result in an economic downfall which will have an adverse impact on the country and the people. We call for urgent and sensible action.”

Political crisis speeds up dollar outflows
10 December 2018

The ongoing unprecedented political crisis has triggered a faster outflow of dollars from Sri Lanka’s debt and capital markets as per the latest provisional data.  

Wealth Trust Securities said the week ended 5 December saw a foreign outflow of Rs. 17 billion, the highest in 23 months whilst the stock market witnessed a near Rs. 1 billion flight last week.

According to Central Bank data, the bond market saw outflows of about Rs. 51.2 billion between 25 October and 5 December whilst in the stock market foreigners have been net sellers to the tune of Rs. 9.6 billion since President Maithripala Sirisena removed the sitting Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe on 26 October and appointed his former political rival Mahinda Rajapaksa to the position. Analysts said that outflows from both the debt and capital market have accelerated since the beginning of the crisis and the political impasse which has followed for over six weeks. 

To date, the outflow from the government securities market is a staggering Rs. 144 billion (the value since the crisis amounts to over 35% of the cumulative figure) and net selling from the Colombo Bourse is over Rs. 19 billion.  The Central Bank however pinned the outflow to the “ongoing portfolio rebalancing strategy of foreign investors”.

It said in September the government securities market continued to experience a withdrawal of foreign investments, recording a net outflow of $ 152 million, thus raising the net cumulative outflow to $ 468 million by the end of the first nine months of 2018. Foreign investments in the CSE, including both secondary and primary market foreign exchange flows, recorded a net outflow of $ 7 million in September and on a cumulative basis to $ 37 million in the first nine months of 2018. In September, long-term loans to the government recorded a net outflow of $ 63 million as loan repayments exceeded loan inflows.

As at end-September 2018, gross official reserves were estimated at $ 7.2 billion, equivalent to 3.8 months of imports. Total foreign assets, which consist of gross official reserves and foreign assets of the banking sector, amounted to $ 9.6 billion as at end-September 2018, equivalent to 5.1 months of imports.

The rupee, which was under severe pressure last month, strengthened marginally last week. It ended at 178.70/85 per dollar on Friday, compared with 179.15/20 in the previous session. It gained to 178.50 during the trade due to dollar inflows from remittances.

Wealth Trust Securities said the US dollar on its spot contracts was seen closing the week higher at Rs. 178.60/90 against its previous week’s closing of Rs. 178.80/10, on the back of inward remittances and selling interest by banks.

The rupee has weakened by about 3.1% since the political crisis began and fell 1.8% in November and 16.3% so far this year. It hit a record low of 180.85 per dollar on 28 November. 

The Central Bank argued that the weakening of the Sri Lankan rupee against the US dollar mostly reflects a broad-based strengthening of the US dollar globally, outflows from the government securities market and demand for import expenditure in the foreign exchange market.

Another worrying development is the depressed performance of workers’ remittances. It declined year-on-year by 7.1% in September to $ 500 million and by 1.5% to $ 5.3 billion during the first nine months of 2018.

Expenditure on imports rose by 6.1% year-on-year to $ 1.76 billion in September and by 10.4% to $ 16.85 billion in the first nine months. On the other hand exports gained by 4.4% to $ 1.05 billion in September and by 5.6% to $ 8.9 billion in the first nine months. The trade deficit grew to $ 8 billion as against $ 6.8 billion in the first nine months of last year. 

Pressure on the external sector has resulted in the Balance of Payments being a negative $ 650 million for the first nine months of 2018 as against a positive $ 2 billion a year earlier.

As per the Central Bank, FDIs during the first eight months were $ 1.35 billion as against $ 567 million during the corresponding period of last year.

Hayleys Energy commences first oil and gas drillship lay-up at Hambantota, Sri Lanka 

Dec 17, 2018 


Sri Lanka’s Hayleys Energy Services announced the arrival of the oil and gas drillship “Aban Abraham” for a warm lay-up to the Hambantota International Port.
Aban Offshore Limited, the company that own the vessel, is India’s largest offshore drilling services provider to oil companies, providing drilling operations, production and exploratory work worldwide.

Hayleys Energy Services, a subsidiary of Sri Lankan blue-chip conglomerate Hayleys PLC’s transportation and logistics arm – Hayleys Advantis Limited, had competed with several players from established lay-up service destinations in the region to win the country’s first ever drill ship lay-up project.

Heralding Sri Lanka’s entry into the global oil and gas marine vessel lay-up services industry, this opens the doors to a world of new opportunities for the nation’s shipping industry.

“Projects of this nature have a significant impact on the economy as a whole, creating business and employment opportunities beyond the enterprises directly involved in it. The leadership, commitment and world class facilities of the Hambantota International Port Group (HIPG) have been a key factor in the success of this project bid and will go a long way in helping us attract long-term businesses such as this,” said Ruwan Waidyaratne, Managing Director – Hayleys Advantis Limited. He went on to say, “Whilst commending the Hayleys Energy Services team for successfully competing with service providers from across the region and bagging this project, I look forward to seeing them expand their horizons and soar to greater heights.”

Hayleys Energy Services has set up a permanent office within the Hambantota Port, at the 6th floor of the Sayurupaya Building, the first by an Oil & Gas Services company at this port, in light of this landmark project and the opportunities it is set to bring with it.

Commenting about the initiative taken by Hayleys Energy Services, Saliya Wickramasuriya, Former Director General – Petroleum Resources Development Secretariat (PRDS) said“Hambantota is an excellent location not just for a vehicle transhipment and break bulk hub, but also for a potential regional service and repair centre for the South Asian Oil & Gas industry. My congratulations to Hayleys Energy Services, long time partners with the PRDS in petroleum exploration and production, for kicking this concept off by bringing the drillship Aban Abraham to the port for long-term lay-up and refurbishment. This new area of business for Sri Lanka will help unlock the port’s full potential and no doubt increase employment and knowledge transfer opportunities for the people of Hambantota in the future.”

Meanwhile, Chas Charles, Director / Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Hayleys Energy Services said, “Having offered an extensive range of end-to-end logistics services for the Oil and Gas industry for over 10 years, we are excited to enter the lay-up services domain with this project, the first for a Sri Lankan company. This is indeed a proud moment for the entire Sri Lankan shipping industry.”

The Aban Abraham had called on the Hambantota International Port recently after completing a long drilling assignment in India. The almost 160 meters long vessel is capable of drilling at depths of up to 6,600 feet and has a drilling depth capacity of up to 24,600 feet. It is to be docked at the Port for a minimum of six months, during which lay-up support services and vessel preservation, husbandry, bunkering, crew management and several other marine services will be provided by Hayleys Energy Services.

“We are delighted to have been chosen for this project and would like to thank the management of Aban Offshore Ltd for placing their trust in us. This is indeed a reflection of our team’s knowledge, expertise and service commitment in the Oil & Gas domain. Having delivered complex integrated logistics services for several Oil and Gas projects, we look forward to completing a safe and efficient project by assisting Aban in their lay-up and preservation of the drillship Aban Abraham at Hambantota International Port, Sri Lanka” said Ricky Barnett, General Manager, Hayleys Energy Services. “We would also like to express our sincere appreciation to all stakeholders including the port’s managers – Hambantota International Port Group (HIPG / HIPS), Sri Lanka Immigration & Emigration Department, Sri Lanka Customs, Sri Lanka Navy and Sri Lanka Ports Authority for their continued support in making this historic project possible.”

Earlier this year, the company successfully completed two projects at the Trincomalee Port Anchorage – the offloading of the Semi-Submersible oil rig, Olinda Star and provision of agency services to the heavy lift carrier “GPO Grace” dry towing the Semi-Submersible oil rig “Louisiana” and they also went on to provide offshore ship to ship supplies/logistics services for Transocean Drillship “Dhirubhai Deepwater KG1” at the Colombo Port Anchorage.

Hayleys Energy Services is a subsidiary of Hayleys Advantis Limited, the transportation and logistics arm of Hayleys PLC. Through the wider logistics offering of Hayleys Advantis Limited, the Group caters to diverse logistics needs of its clientele. The company has provided logistics & support services for several projects in the Oil & Gas sector both locally and internationally including supply base management services, seismic and metocean surveys, exploratory drilling, rig repairs & servicing, duty free storage of drill rigs & transportation, and loading, offloading, towing and lay-up services for Oil & Gas rigs and marine asset.
