Sri Lanka Interest Rate  2003-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast

The Central Bank of Sri Lanka held its benchmark interest rate at 7.25 percent on November 7th, 2017, saying the decision is consistent with the objective of maintaining inflation at mid-single digit levels over the medium term and thereby facilitating a sustainable growth trajectory. Inflation is expected to moderate from December 2017 and reach the desired levels in 2018. Meanwhile, economic growth is estimated to perform better during the second half of the year, as result of the continued positive momentum of industry and services and the modest recovery in the agriculture sector, while forward looking indicators show improved medium term prospects, supported by structural reforms and expected inflows of foreign investments. Also, the central bank held its standing lending facility rate at 8.75 percent. Interest Rate in Sri Lanka averaged 7.86 percent from 2003 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 10.50 percent in February of 2007 and a record low of 6 percent in April of 2015.
