Sri Lanka SOE losses hurt investment and jobs: IMF: Massive losses at Sri Lanka's state enterprises have a negative impact on people's lives that are beyond accounting losses in the balance sheet, which hurts investment and jobs an IMF official said. Last year state-run Ceylon Petroleum Corporation and Ceylon Electricity Board lost more than LKR150 bn. "It is not because we have some kind of undue concern for financial results," IMF resident representative Koshy Mathai said. "Those losses are a real drag on the economy." The losses were now hidden in the balance sheets Bank of Ceylon and People's Bank, but they ate up savings in the banking system taking away investible resources eventually costing jobs. "It is easy to put those losses aside because don't see them in the central government budget," Mathai said. "They are hidden somewhere on the balance sheets of Bank of Ceylon and People's Bank. When those banks are forced to lend such huge amounts there is correspondingly less money that has to be lent to the rest of the economy. And interest rates for the whole economy go very high as businesses are seeing now. When those interest rates are high, growth goes down and jobs are lost. So this is not a choice between having a nice looking balance sheet for state enterprises and having price increases that difficult for the ordinary person." [Source: www.lbo.lk] Sri Lanka electricity rate change to cut revenues by LKR8.0 bn: A change made to an electricity tariff hike from April 2013 will reduce expected revenues by LKR8.0 bn a year, a media report said. Sri Lanka's privately run The Island newspaper quoted power ministry secretary M M C Ferdinando as saying that reversing the increase to users up to 60 units and cutting a fuel surcharge from 40% to 30% for users up to 160 units would cost LKR45 bn. The Ceylon Electricity Board expected to get LKR45 bn from the tariff hike. For 2013 the CEB estimated expenditures of LKR256 bn and the Public Utilities Commission the power regulator allowed it LKR228 bn of costs which was to have been covered by the approved tariff increase. The CEB said at a public hearing on called by the regulator that the first proposed tariff would bring it LKR223 bn in revenues, compared to LKR178 bn it would have got if no increase was made. Even with the additional revenue would have the CEB was to have been left with a loss of LKR33 bn by year end. The reduction of revenues by LKR8.0 bn would increase the loss. [Source: www.lbo.lk] IMF advocates to hold policy rates: he International Monetary Fund (IMF) on Thursday warned against easing monetary policy this year, in order to prevent further inflationary pressure. We recommend holding policy rates at current levels, at least until inflation eases. It is difficult to say how long a tight monetary Softlogic Equity Research Page | 5

policy should be maintained. So, the Central Bank will have to respond as the situation develops but we expect policy rates to remain as it is for the rest of the year. Sri Lankas economic growth has been positive when taken in the global context. However it is clearly not where we want it to be. We dont see high growth figures as being achievable with current policy packages, IMF Resident Representative, Koshy Mathai said. Mathais comments on Thursday led the IMF into direct conflict with the position adopted by Central Bank of Sri Lanka (CBSL) Governor Ajith Nivard Cabraal who expressed confidence in the possibility of easing monetary policy in order to spur economic growth. We know that the demand-driven pressures are very clearly addressed, so we are quite confident that the time has now come to ease rather than tighten monetary policy. Over next few months we will be able to see inflation in the mid-single digit numbers towards the end of this year, the greater focus would have to be for growth. Cabraal had told Bloomberg wire. [Source: www.dailymirror.lk] Colombo Port to add 7.5 mn TEUs: The Sri Lanka Ports Authority will contribute USD10 bn for the national investment strategy as the Government has planned to attract approximately 3% -4% of the countrys GDP annually as foreign direct investments, said Sri Lanka Ports Authority Chairman Priyath B Wickrama said. Sri Lankas close proximity to the Indian subcontinent will give us a distinctive advantage to exploit our strong maritime heritage and global logistics demand and we are well aware of the potentiality of developing Sri Lanka with the maritime sector development in the world as well as in the region Existing port facilities will be developed to increase the productivity of port activities and to attract additional volumes. Measures have been taken to set up an industrial Zone with facilities for tourism including whale watching within the land owned by the Sri Lanka Ports Authority under the development program of the port of Trincomalee.

Other two berths of the south terminal will be operational by 2014. The second terminal, East terminal is also being developed and the first berth of the terminal will be operational by end of 2013. The port will add 7.5 mn TEUs to the existing capacity of the Colombo Port once all three terminals, South East and West under the Port development Project were completed. [Source: www.dailynews.lk] Sri Lanka's China Merchant terminal expects strong interest: Colombo International Container Terminal Plc, (CICT) a unit of China Merchant Holdings (International) will begin discussions with potential customers shortly with the first berth due to open in July, an official said. "The port of Colombo can accommodate mega vessels," CICT chief executive Yunshu Liu said on the sidelines of ports and logistics conference organized by Seatrade a consultancy, and state-run Sri Lanka Ports Authority.

CICT is a deep water terminal with an 18 meter depth and the outreach of a crane is 17 meters."

India Says Inflation, Trade Gap Constrain Policy Scope: The Reserve Bank of India said the space for monetary policy to support economic growth remains constrained by elevated consumer-price inflation and a record current-account deficit. Monetary policy would need to be calibrated recognizing the very limited policy space available to ease further, the Reserve Bank said yesterday in an economic review before todays rate decision in Mumbai. It cited significant risks including a high current-account gap and inflation above the threshold over which it becomes inimical to growth sustainability. Indias economy expanded at the weakest pace in a decade last fiscal year, and wholesale-price inflation slowed in March to a more than three-year low even as consumer inflation held above 10%. Governor Duvvuri Subbarao will cut the repurchase rate for a third straight meeting to 7.25% from 7.50%, 33 of 40 analysts said in a Bloomberg survey. [Source: www.bloomberg.com] Euro Weakens as Draghi Open to Negative Deposit Rate: The euro fell for the first time in five days against the dollar after European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said policy makers may take the unprecedented step of charging banks to hold excess reserves. The single currency dropped against all except one of its 16 most-traded peers as the ECB cut its main refinancing rate and Draghi said policy makers had an open mind on a negative deposit rate. The dollar rose the most in almost two weeks versus the yen after number of Americans filing claims for jobless benefits unexpectedly dropped to a five-year low. Swedens krona slid as manufacturing in the nation shrank. A deposit rate below zero would be a potential game- changer for the ECB, Joe Manimbo, a market analyst at Western Union Business Solutions, a unit of Western Union Co., said in a phone interview from Washington. It would compel banks to flood the financial system over there with euros, which would inherently put downward pressure on the single currency. [Source: www.bloomberg.com]
