Sri Lanka GDP Growth at Over 5-Year Low
The economy of Sri Lanka grew by 1.6 percent year-on-year in the second quarter of 2019, easing from a 3.7 percent expansion in the previous three-month period. That was the weakest growth rate since the first quarter of 2014 due to a slowdown in overall activity following the Easter Sunday attacks. Wholesale and retail trade, transportation and storage, accommodation and food service activities, which account for nearly 25 percent of total GDP, shrank 0.6 percent, after a 3.3 percent advance in Q1. In addition, output rose at a softer pace for: manufacturing, mining and quarrying and other industry (1 percent vs 1.8 percent); financial and insurance activities (8 percent vs 9.6 percent); public administration, defense, education, human health and social work activities (0.6 percent vs 2.1 percent); other services (1.5 percent vs 4.6 percent); and agriculture, forestry & fishing (1 percent vs 5.5 percent).
