The secretary is disavowing any knowledge of your actions.

I had to read this rash.. the President took an opportunity to convert everything to organic agriculture. Not mentioned here. There was a gap in imports so they decided to ban imports of agrochemicals. Then farmers went "we don't know if crops will come in" and stopped working. Extend a line of imports credit to buy agricultural chemicals, then maybe everyone can make it work.

I'm surprised Elon Musk doesn't just wipe out their whole debt in exchange for being declared king.

FTA:"The IMF team, visiting Colombo through June 30, will continue recent talks on what would be Sri Lanka's 17th rescue programme, the IMF said on Sunday."

Maybe bring in some professional money management?

"The 16th rescue programme caught fire, fell over, and sank into the swamp, but we're positive this one will work!"

As a kid I thought the secretary in 'the secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions' was the gal who answered the phone at the office.  I was like that's a lot of responsibility to put on her.

Not to worry. As long as the IMF is getting their interest payments it's all good.

Why can't India bail them out? Are they waiting for China to build naval bases there?

My guess is Sri Lanka doesn't want to be a province of India.

Just take a clue from The Simpsons and move everyone from Sri Lanka to Ceylon and just start anew.

They have huge outstanding loans to China for some very dodgy airports and ports and townships that the Chinese were going to build for them. Till that is resolved, nobody, not even the IMF can do much.
