News: Does Debt Pay? China and the Politics of Investment in Sri Lanka What are the sources and impact of China’s economic leverage over Sri Lanka?
Posted Date: 20/01/2018 (Saturday)
Last month, the Sri Lankan government formally handed over control of the port of Hambantota to Chinese interests on a 99-year lease. The price was over one billion dollars, but this came mostly in the form of a reduction in the enormous debt burden to Beijing that is crippling the island nation’s economy. Strategists warn that by giving up control of the port, a strategic asset straddling Indian Ocean shipping lanes, Sri Lanka is sacrificing its sovereignty and succumbing to what one Indian analyst has labelled “creditor imperialism” by China.

News: “We are at the end of our tether!” What African Women are trying to tell the Microfinance Industry
Posted Date: 19/01/2018 (Friday)
“[T]he promoters of micro-credits promise to deliver us from poverty and emancipate women. In fact, it is the opposite that happens: we find ourselves trapped in a spiral of over indebtedness, launching infeasible micro-projects that, instead of keeping our heads above water, push us deeper into poverty, stress, humiliation and violence. We are at the end of our tether! This is part of a declaration recently issued by women from fourteen countries, gathered in a meeting of African activists in Bamako, Mali, in November.

News: CaFFE asks if President still have faith in PM
Posted Date: 18/01/2018 (Thursday)
If President Maithripala Sirisena still trusts Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, it means that he has not read the bond commission report, the Campaign for Free and Fair Elections (CaFFE) said on Wednesday. In a statement, CaFFE Executive Director Rajith Keerthi Tennakoon said the Prime Minister has shown that he relies, not on impartial inquiry and independent investigations when making decisions on important matters but on verbal assurances given to him by his associates. He said that the report of the PCoI states that 'the question of whether or not the fact that, Mr. Mahendran was not a citizen of Sri Lanka precluded him from being appointed the governor of the CBSL was not a Question of Law.

News: President, the sands of time are running out
Posted Date: 17/01/2018 (Wednesday)
President Maithripala Sirisena by seeking a Supreme Court determination has confused the country as to what really his motive was. Firstly, he had made this request to the Supreme Court in the run-up to an election and therefore some leaders of the joint opposition on the premise that he had expected the Court to rule that his term of office would be six years had interpreted it as an attempt to demoralize the opposition voters at the forthcoming local government elections. Many others including some of those who supported the Maithripala Sirisena as the Opposition’s common candidate at the January 2015 presidential election claimed that he
