    study on an open economy quarterly IMF projection model for Sri Lanka

    June 26, 2018

    The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has published a working paper on an open economy quarterly projection model for Sri Lanka which documents a semi-structural model developed for Sri Lanka.

    According to the authors, this model, extended with a fiscal sector block, is expected to serve as a core forecasting model in the process of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka's move towards flexible inflation targeting.

    The model includes a forward-looking endogenous interest rate and foreign exchange rate policy rules allowing for flexible change in policy behavior. It is a gap model that allows for simultaneous identification of business cycle position and long-term equilibrium. The full report can be downloaded from the IMF site .
