Director of the International Monetary Fund's Asia Pacific Department and one-time country representative of Sri Lanka Anoop Singh, is to retire.


IMF managing director Christine Lagarde said in a statement that "Anoop’s departure will deprive the Fund of one its most distinguished staff members, and his friends of a hugely admired colleague.


Singh had joined the IMF in 1973, and was director of the Western Hemisphere department before heading the Asia Pacific department.
