The IMF, which is providing financial assistance to Sri Lanka in post-war rebuilding efforts, sent a high-level team of officials to Jaffna to discuss rehabilitation efforts and estimate the financial requirements needed for the crucial development.

Sri Lanka has so far received two tranches of the SBA loan totaling $658.8 million and discussions are on for the third instalment of $320 million.

The mission was led by Brian Aitken, Mission Chief for Sri Lanka of the IMF's Asia and Pacific Department.

The team discussed with top government officials on the welfare of the IDPs, their livelihood development and infrastructure development of the resettled areas, an official release said today.

A team of officials from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) together with officials from the Central Bank of Sri Lanka met Northern Province Governor Maj General GA Chandrasiri here last week.
