Sri Lanka to be the first nation in Asia to undergo an IMF governance diagnostic exercise

Sri Lanka will be the first country in Asia to undergo a governance diagnostic exercise by the IMF which will assess corruption and governance vulnerabilities in the debt-trapped country, the global lender said on Tuesday.

The International Monetary Fund’s Executive Board approved on Monday a 48-month extended arrangement under its Extended Fund Facility (EFF) with an amount of SDR 2.286 billion (about USD 3 billion) to help Sri Lanka overcome its economic crisis.

The IMF emphasised the importance of anti-corruption and governance reforms as a central pillar of the EFF-supported programme.
