But the economic policy of the country has not been changed. We are strengthening the economy since the beginning of this year. We have curtailed the imports and are improving the exports," the Minister said.

"We are narrowing the gap between imports and exports. We expect some investments. Foreign remittance increases from time to time. We will get tourists by November and December. Specific plans in this regard will be detailed in the 2022 budget speech by Finance Minister Basil Rajapaksa," Dr Pathirana added.
