EFSAS comments on India’s response to the economic crisis in Sri Lanka


As the economic disaster bred political unrest and protests that often degenerated into violence, a Sri Lankan government desperate to halt the seeming slide towards lawlessness and chaos found an invaluable ally in neighbouring India, which not only lived up to its role of being the regional power but did so while focusing on the best interests of the people of Sri Lanka. India’s assistance to help the people of Sri Lanka overcome their current difficulties has been worth over $3.5 billion this year alone. It has also sent over 65,000 tonnes of fertilizers, 400,000 tonnes of fuel, and large quantities of urgently needed food and medical supplies to Colombo.
