ECONOMYNEXT - Sri Lanka is in talks with Qatar and Oman for foreign exchange swaps, Central Bank Governor Indrajit Coomaraswamy said.

Sri Lanka had foreign reserves of about 8.0 billion rupees with a billion dollar loan from China, he said.

Interventions were about 365 million dollars so far this year in a net basis, which was to prevent a 'disorderly' adjustment of the exchange rate he said.

He said it could be argued that in going forward major pressure on the exchange rate may ease.

In the latter part of the year, both remittances and tourism receipts improve, he said.

Coomaraswamy said inflation was low, budget deficit though slightly higher than expected, was on track and the there is expected to be primary surplus.

Fuel was also market priced, he said.

Both Qatar and Oman has monetary authorities which does not generally print money to bring rates down and interest rates or close 'output gaps', anlaysts say.

Qatar has a currency board like system with a credible peg where the monetary authority runs consistent policy and had an exchange rate of 4.76 to the US dollar at the time the Central Bank of Ceylon was created in 1950 exactly like Sri Lanka.

At the time Qatar was dollarized with Indian rupees, and Sri Lanka had a currency board, which was also originally based on the Indian rupee.

The Qatar Riyal which was created later in line with the Indian rupee is now 3.64 to the US dollar.

Oman also has a currency-board-like system with a highly credible peg.

At the time Sri Lanka' central bank was created the 'exchange rate' in Oman was about 0.357 to the US dollar.

Now a US dollar is 0.384 to the Omani Riyal.

Oman's currency is a legacy of coins like the Maria Theressia Thaler, which had a higher denomination than the US dollar unlike the Indian rupee of Sri Lanka and Qatar. (Colombo/Oct23/2018)
