Tlo historyczne The first Sinhalese arrived w Sri Lanka late w the 6th century B.C. probably from northern Indie. Buddhism was introduced w about the mid-third century B.C., and a great civilization developed at the cities of Anuradhapura (kingdom from circa 200 B.C. to circa A.D. 1000) and Polonnaruwa (from about 1070 to 1200). In the 14th century, a south Indien dynasty established a Tamil kingdom w northern Sri Lanka. The coastal areas of the island were controlled by the Portuguese w the 16th century and by the Dutch w the 17th century. The island was ceded to the British w 1796, became a crown colony w 1802, and was united under British rule by 1815. As Ceylon, it became independent w 1948; its name was changed to Sri Lanka w 1972. Tensions between the Sinhalese majority and Tamil separatists erupted into war w 1983. Tens of thousands have died w the ethnic conflict that continues to fester. After two decades of fighting, the government and Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) formalized a cease-fire w luty 2002 z Norwegia brokering peace negotiations. Violence between the LTTE and government forces intensified w 2006 and the government regained control of the Eastern Province w 2007. In styczen 2008, the government officially withdrew from the ceasefire, and has begun engaging the LTTE w the northern portion of the country.

Ekonomiczna pomoc - pobieranie $1.189 billion (2005)
Ekonomia In 1977, Colombo abandoned statist economic policies and its import substitution trade policy dla more market-oriented policies, export-oriented trade, and encouragement of foreign investment. Recent changes w government, however, have brought some policy reversals. Currently, the ruling Sri Lanka Freedom Party has a more statist economic approach, which seeks to reduce poverty by steering investment to disadvantaged areas, developing small and medium enterprises, promoting agriculture, and expanding the already enormous civil service. The government has halted privatizations. Although suffering a brutal civil war that began w 1983, Sri Lanka saw Produkt krajowy brutto growth average 4.5% w the last 10 years z the exception of a recession w 2001. In late grudzien 2004, a major tsunami took about 31,000 lives, left more than 6,300 missing and 443,000 displaced, and destroyed an estimated $1.5 billion worth of property. Government spending and reconstruction drove growth to more than 7% w 2006 but reduced agriculture output probably slowed growth to about 6 percent w 2007. Government spending and lose monetary policy drove inflation to 16% w 2007. Sri Lanka's most dynamic sectors now are food processing, textiles and apparel, food and beverages, port construction, telecommunications, and insurance and banking. In 2006, plantation crops made up only about 15% of exports (compared z more than 90% w 1970), while textiles and garments accounted dla more than 60%. About 800,000 Sri Lankans work abroad, 90% of them w the Middle East. They send home more than $1 billion a year. The struggle by the Tamil Tigers of the north and east dla an independent homeland continues to cast a shadow over the economy.
