Sri Lanka's real economic growth likely to remain broadly on target in 2014 - Central Bank.
The Central Bank in its August monetary policy review reveals that considering available information for the first half of the year, real economic growth is likely to remain broadly on target in 2014.
Headline inflation continued to remain in low single digit levels, although it increased to 3.6 per cent on a year-on-year basis in July 2014 from 2.8 per cent in the previous month reflecting higher prices of certain food items caused by adverse weather conditions.
Meanwhile, core inflation, which reflects underlying price movements, rose marginally to 3.7 per cent in July compared to 3.5 per cent in June 2014.
