Sri Lanka, July 18 -- Sri Lanka received 369 million US dollars in development aid in the first four months of this year, a notable drop from the 539 m USD received during the same period last year.

The decline is due to the suspension of a number of development projects as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

During the period, China offered 68.4 m USD, and a further 500 m USD received as budget assistance.
