Sri Lankan migrants to be allowed to invest in government securities

This page in:

Sri Lanka recently announced that it would open up the government securities market for its migrants abroad. Sri Lankan diaspora and migrant workers would be allowed to invest in rupee denominated treasury bills and treasury bonds.

The press release by the Sri Lanka central bank suggests that this measure “…is expected to widen the investor base, diversify the Government Securities market, make it more convenient for Sri Lankans living abroad to access Government Securities, and to create a more stable Government securities market. This scheme will also provide a safe and highly liquid investment opportunity for Sri Lankans living abroad, while providing them with an attractive return on their investments.”
