PATHFINDER FOUNDATION: CENTRE FOR INDO – LANKA INITAITIVES Economic and Technology Cooperation Agreement (ETCA): Separating Wheat from the Chaff.

In assessing the proposed ETCA, it is important to place any analysis within the overall context of the options for accelerated development available to a country like Sri Lanka. The need to prioritise faster growth and employment generation is reinforced by the fact that: (i) Sri Lanka has slipped from being second to Japan in Asia on most socioeconomic indicators at the time of independence to a position much further down in the ranking of countries in this region; and (ii) tens of thousands of young people have been killed in the two Southern insurrections largely due to a mismatch between opportunities and expectations. This was also an important causal factor for the separatist movement in the North and East. Given this legacy, it is imperative that the highest priority has to be given to growth and employment creation. During the last 10-years, the public service has increased by 700,000 persons. The current budget and debt dynamics mean that such a course of action can no longer be continued. Similarly, the previous external commercial borrowing financed growth model has also run out of headroom. This means that growth and employment will have to be driven by private investment. The savings and investment gap in Sri Lanka is such that FDI, as a non-debt creating inflow, will have to play a crucial role in filling this gap and generating the desired growth and employment.
