Central bank governor hopes interest rates can be maintained at current levels, after a 50 basis point rate hike last week, but this will be determined by external factors, he said.

The island’s policy rates are at 6.5 percent and 8 percent, while 10-year Treasury bond yields have increased to 11.75 percent.

Sri Lanka’s economic growth is running above 5 percent and the governor suggested that economic growth would continue to be a priority.
