Country Economic Review: Sri Lanka
Asian Development Bank | February 2001
The Sri Lankan economy started to recover in the second half of 1999, and the recovery accelerated in 2000. Both internal factors such as weather conditions and political uncertainties, and external factors such as overall economic luctuation in the wake of Asian financial crisis and high oil prices were key elements in determining the movement of the economy. However, another key factor that constrained the economy was the civil conflict that started in 1983 and intensified since April 2000.
