Sri Lanka fights back from -17% GDP? | Daily FT
The media recently was speculating on why the delay in Q2 GDP growth data not been released. Then on social media the story broke out that Sri Lanka’s GDP has declined to -17%.

His name is bandied in the news. His children become the butt of insults. The spouse, parents and siblings disown him. Friends and associates shun ...
