Central Bank Governor, Ajith Nivard Cabraal said Sri Lanka per capita income would reach the 4,000 dollar mark in two years.


Governor said that it was targeted to reach this mark in 2016.


He said that currently there were 106 countries that enjoy the 4,000 dollars per capita income and when Sri Lanka reaches this mark, the economy should be diversified with new themes and new ‘hub’ concepts to take the country beyond that mark.
