The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has released a statement that the economic growth of this country will come to 3.7% at the end of this year 2020. Even though the influx of tourists and the business affairs were affected due to Easter attacks and the New Corona Virus, the IMF statement focuses on the fact that the production of the country and the improvements in the tourist industry had marked a significant growth at the last phase of the previous year.
