Sri Lanka - Exchange Rate

Activity seemingly faced headwinds in Q2, as available data suggests weaker economic dynamics: Both the manufacturing and services PMIs remained downbeat amid the fallout from fresh restrictions brought about by a third wave of Covid-19 infections. In addition, the tourism sector recorded a setback in May–June. The panorama seemed to improve at the outset of Q3. On 8 July, authorities reduced quarantine requirements for fully vaccinated foreign visitors, providing some respite for the struggling tourism industry, with tourist arrivals increasing during the month. Moreover, both PMIs soared in July, as services benefited from additional tourist demand and key manufacturing subsectors such as textiles registered higher new orders, production and employment. That said, the imposition of a 10-day lockdown on 20 August should severely disrupt activity ahead.
