Sri Lanka appeals to expatriates for foreign currency inflows to help tackle coronavirus

Sri Lankan financial authorities appealed to Sri Lankan expatriates to consider depositing their foreign currency savings into the Sri Lankan banking system to help tackle coronavirus. 

In a statement, the Central Bank of Sri Lanka called for support to "safeguard the people from coronavirus, to bring its spread under control and to provide healthcare and social security to the people."

"Such remittances would go a long way to promote people's welfare during the current period of still spread COVID-19, and economic revival in the immediate aftermath," the statement added.
