Cabraal told reporters here on Friday that Sri Lanka was going through a difficult time but had shown to be resilient even in the past, reports Xinhua news agency.

He said the 2021 growth rate was likely to be around "4.5 per cent to 5.0 per cent".

According to official figures, Sri Lanka's reserves rose to $3.1 billion in December with the central bank borrowing dollars through swaps after falling to $1.6 billion in November, raising fears of default of payments for international loans.

The central bank chief said Sri Lanka will not default and will continue to pay loans and keep its records.
