The Central Bank Deputy Governor Dr Nandalal Weerasinghe says that Sri Lanka has improved investor sentiments with regard to government bonds traded in the international capital market.


He said Sri Lankan government bonds were been traded in the international capital market at a rate of 5 % in comparison to 8 to 7 % interest rates that Sri Lanka raised in the past.


He added that the international community had placed their confidence in Sri Lanka’s growth story and investors were willing to lend us at a lower rate; which is a clear indication that the country was improving its yields in international capital market.
