lots of people thought stock market would go up after rajapaksa regaining power but nothing happened. now they think bull run will start after general election. the way things are moving at the moment i don't think gotabhaya can get 2/3 majority. even worse can happen if UNP won the general election.

PM assures boost for stock market

• Commiserates with brokers over woeful run in last four years 
• Pledges to prioritise policies that will develop CSE 
• Acknowledges difficulties faced by brokers 
• Brokers request expediting demutualisation, reconstituting SEC fast; greater participation by pension funds; VAT relief among others
Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday assured stockbrokers that the Government would prioritise the development of the stock market to improve attracting investment to the country. 



During a meeting with the members of the Colombo Stock Brokers Association (CSBA), Rajapaksa had insisted that the prolonged decline seen in the Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) over the last four years would be reversed by fresh policies, the Finance Ministry said in a statement.

“The CSE along with the entire economy faced a massive reversal of fortunes in the last four-and-a-half years. This Government has already set in motion several policies to turn this situation around and as part of our next step we will see how we can revitalise the CSE. This is one of the Government’s key policies moving forward,” Rajapaksa said.

During the discussion, the stockbrokers had emphasised the importance of expediting demutualisation of the CSE, an Act for which is ready for submission in Parliament. Prime Minister said the new Government will table it in Parliament. 

Brokers also urged greater participation of pension funds such as the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) and the Employees Trust Fund (ETF) returning to fully-fledged investing given the attractiveness and value thereby boosting the market.

It was pointed out that in East Asia pension funds exposure to listed equities market is between 17 to high as 40% whereas in Sri Lanka it was just 5%. Brokers had emphasised the need to have clear and sound guidelines for pension funds when it comes to selection of stocks to invest to ensure all stakeholder interest. For example it was pointed out that banks were trading below their net asset value and several other blue chips are trading at discounted prices and pension funds will stand to benefit by buying at the bottom of the market.

The brokers had also emphasised on the importance of building trust in the market to attract more foreign investment and generate interest in the profitability of the CSE. They had gone on to outline the challenges they had faced in the last four years and recalled having to even reduce staff due to the poor performance of the stock market. Some companies had even gone bankrupt, they said. 
The brokers had also appealed to Rajapaksa to expedite the demutualisation process for the CSE so that it would establish the entity as a listed company within the CSE. 

To boost liquidity and market capitalisation listing of select State Owned Enterprises (SOEs) or part shedding of some state owned listed entities was mooted but Prime Minister had reiterated the Government stand against privatisation. 

Early reconstitution of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) members was another request and Rajapaksa directed Treasury Secretary S.R. Attygalle who was present to attend to it. Market-oriented yet highly respected regulator Dr. Dayanath Jayasuriya has been nominated for a fresh term as SEC Chairman. 

Brokers had also sought relief from VAT on broking houses saying they are unable to pay given their dire financial status. Average daily turnover had halved to Rs. 700 million in 2019 from Rs. 1.7 billion in 2014. 

Overall the CSBA representatives said greater market activity will help Government revenue as well via the 0.3% Share Transaction Levy on each trade which in the past used to generate Rs. 3 billion in revenue though it had reduced to Rs. 1 billion last year. 

CSBA President Kosala Gamage along with 15 others attended the meeting. Senior Economic Advisor to Prime Minister Nivard Cabraal, Secretary to Prime Minister Gamini Senerath, SEC and CSE officials were also present.

More than debt moratoarium or tax cuts (Both have a positive effect medium term) these decisons will hamper the economy and will never recover from there...

Actually none of these efforts fruitful after creating Macro economic issues which destroy economy and then also keeping SOE's without privatising..

https://economynext.com/sri-lanka-tax-payer-to-bear-unemployable-graduates-burden-from-march-41133/

Another cycle same output.. If Govt want to give Jobs to unemployed and poor, they have to give them for Private sector and ask them to work and earn. Govt can hire them or ask Private sector to pay half while Govt give half till they get trained for few years, afterwards they have to be absorbed or find other jobs. The money given by Govt can be considered a Long term loan and asked to pay later. Then these people will become productive labour. . Now these people going to sleep and earn in the Govt sector. Simply a burden on Tax payers and private sector. Private sector will be loaded with some taxes or another...

Who is advising this Govt to do these crazy things ..... ??
