July 24, Colombo: The Central Bank of Sri Lanka (CBSL) and the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) today entered into a Bilateral Agreement to gain access into each other's securities markets.

The agreement will enable the CBSL to further diversify its reserves management activities into Indian rupee denominated assets while reciprocally, RBI will be able to access the Sri Lankan government securities market , up to a maximum value equivalent of US$ 500 million, each way.

As a result, the CBSL could now access one of the growing securities markets in the world, realizing a considerably higher return for the funds invested. At the same time, the RBI investments in the Sri Lankan government securities market would lead to greater stability in the Sri Lankan government bond market.

Governor of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka, Ajith Nivard Cabraal exchanged the Bilateral Investment Agreement with the Governor of the Reserve Bank of India, Dr. Raghuram Rajan, on the sidelines of the SAARCFINANCE Governors' Symposium held in Colombo.
