    Sri Lanka will issue a US$ 500 million international sovereign bond next year to roll over a maturing bond issued in 2009, a top central bank official has told Reuters on Monday.


    "There will be a sovereign bond issue next year. There is a bond maturing next year and we have to roll out," Deputy Central Bank Governor Nandalal Weerasinghe has told Reuters at a post-budget forum in Colombo.
