The Central Bank has released the ‘Economic and Social Statistics of Sri Lanka – 2021’, an annual publication of the Central Bank (CB) for public access.
CB Statistics Department restructured the layout of the publication last year, for ease of reference, while adding more statistics to enrich its content. Accordingly, the publication consists of statistical tables categorised under eight major areas, i.e. ‘National Accounts,’ ‘Economic and Social Infrastructure,’ ‘Prices, Wages and Employment,’ ‘External Trade and Finance,’ ‘Government Finance,’ ‘Money and Capital Markets,’ ‘Financial Sector,’ and statistics of other countries.
The publication is available in both printed and electronic versions and will be a useful collection of information for those who are interested in socio-economic statistics.
The publication can be purchased from the CB’s Sales and Distribution Counters located at the Central Point Building (Chatham Street, Colombo 1), Tel: 011-2444502; Centre for Banking Studies (No. 58, Sri Jayewardenepura Mawatha, Rajagiriya), Tel:011-2477803; and Regional Offices of the Central Bank (Matara, Matale, Nuwara Eliya, Kilinochchi, Trincomalee and Anuradhapura). The electronic version can be accessed through the CB website (http://www.cbsl.gov.lk).
