The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce (CCC) launched its ‘Economic Review and Outlook 2017,’ containing information on trends, risks and prospects of Sri Lanka and the global economy titled, ‘Triumph Through Turbulence’.
The report provides a view of the key macroeconomic factors shaping the business environment this year, including GDP growth outlook, inflation, monetary and fiscal policy, external sector, FDI, tourism, remittances and sectoral insights. Under the ‘Global Economy’ section, the report focuses on prospects and risks in advanced and emerging economies, particularly the US and Europe, which are key export markets for Sri Lanka.
CCC’s Chief Economist Anushka Wijesinha said, “This report is a useful one-stop-shop of information on key economic issues. This year will be a challenging year, domestically and externally, and being aware of key economic trends is imperative for any business.”
The publication also has a special segment on consumption outlook, impact of the drought, new project opportunities, emerging policy and regulatory changes, and CCC’s forecasts on key macro variables and policy outlook for this year.
