The Sri Lankan economy has recorded a 7.6 percent growth, in real terms, during the first quarter of 2014 in comparison to 6.1 percent growth in the same period in 2013.

The growth has been supported mainly by the strong growth in the Industry and Services sectors, but lagged by a relatively lower growth in the Agriculture sector due to drought conditions.

Achieving a growth rate of this magnitude following the growth rates of around 8 percent during the last two quarters in 2013 is notable.
