COLOMBO, Jan 2 (Reuters) - Sri Lanka’s economy will grow annually at 8 percent between 2015 and 2020 after achieving estimated growth of 7.8 percent in 2014, the central bank said on Friday.
“Our target is achieving 8 percent economic growth this year. We expect inflation to remain between 2-4 percent this year. We would also be comfortable even at 3-5 percent,” Central Bank Governor Ajith Nivard Cabraal told a forum announcing the economic outlook for this year.
