Sri Lanka’s critical debt restructuring is facing further delays as China and India has yet to formally agree to a write-down of their loans. The IMF will not release the cash until China and India first agree to reduce Sri Lanka's debt and this would delay the bailout that Sri Lanka was supposed to get. We speak to Anushka Wijesinha of the think tank Centre for a Smart Future for some thoughts.
