Sri Lankan rupee hits new record closing low
(Reuters) – The Sri Lankan rupee closed at a fresh record low on Monday as dollar selling by exporters helped the currency recover from a record intra-day low, offsetting demand for the greenback by importers, dealers said.
Earlier, the spot currency fell 0.3 percent to touch a record low of 141.40, surpassing its all-time low of 141.00 hit last Tuesday.
The rupee closed at 141.25/30 on Monday. (COLOMBO, Sept 28/2015
