ORIGIN

Article published in Daily Mirror dated 2017-08-26

Investing in Govt. securities today riskier than Greece bonds

Former Central Bank Governor Ajith Nivard Cabraal said an investment today in the Sri Lankan Government Securities such as Treasury Bills, Treasury Bonds, Development Bonds, and International Sovereign Bonds pose a much higher credit risk than that faced by those who invested in Greece Bonds in April 2011.

“Further, it is also to be noted that in April 2011, when the Central Bank invested in the Greece Bonds, the international credit rating of Greece was BB+ which was 3 notches higher than Sri Lanka’s current rating of B+ (negative).”

as long as your workers abroad keep sending over 6 billions $ remittances every year , I can't see how you can possibly go bankrupt.
Your current account deficit/GDP ratio is 2.5% , when Greece went bankrupt it was 15%.

We project annual growth in general government debt to average 4.4% of GDP for 2017-2020, versus an average of 7.0% annually from 2014-2016. In view of Sri Lanka's robust nominal GDP growth, we project net general government debt to decline to 65% of GDP through 2020, assuming currency stability versus the dollar (and hence a degree of real exchange rate appreciation).


Hardly a negative projection , I'd say  Basketball

A POLITICALLY MOTIVATED STATEMENT MADE BY FORMER CB GOVERNOR NIVARD CABRAL  TO COVER UP HIS BLUNDER IN   THE INVESTMENT OF GREEK BOND. WE LOST WHOLE MONEY IN THAT INVESTMENT. THIS IS  ONLY ONE CASE AGAINST HIM. LIST IS VERY LONG ONE TO COME.

The Person who spend on Greek bonds, Now commenting on Sri Lanka bonds,,
If he is the CB governor in banana republic now for him SL bonds will be much more attractive than Greek bonds...
There will be lot like him in the world so no worry investors will come.

Why Pro Govt or anti Kabral writers cannot counter attack the fact he highlighted ?

Was Greek at BB +  and now are we  at B+   ?  

Which is safer  BB+ or B+ ?  

What about Role Thinking ?
How outsiders see this ?  Greek was BB+ and failed. Sri Lanka has gone even 3 steps down  from that level (as per this news).

We criticize Kabral for investing in BB+
Can we expect others to invest in our b+  ?

IS that the fact that our ratings downgraded??

Please review the rating chart below; It seems we had same rating in 2008, 209, 2012 etc..

Correct me if I am wrong, I guess if someone is not having the credibility or trying cunningly mislead the crowd.
