The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce launched its ‘Economic Review and Outlook 2017,’ a new report, which contains information on trends, risks and prospects of both Sri Lankan and the global economy. Titled, ‘Triumph Through Turbulence’.
The latest report provides a view on the key macroeconomic factors shaping the business environment in 2017, including GDP growth outlook, inflation, monetary and fiscal policy, external sector, FDI, tourism, remittances and sectoral insights.
