The external sector showed a mixed performance with a widened trade deficit and continued inflows in the form of services and workers’ remittances in June 2015.

The Central Bank said that the wider trade deficit on a cumulative basis as at end June 2015 was offset to a greater extent by continued healthy inflows of workers’ remittances and earnings from tourism.

Cumulative inflows to the financial account continued to moderate although inflows in June witnessed some improvement.
