Via the Daily FT, there are about 952,256 credit cards in Sri Lanka as of 2012. Sri Lankans owe about Rs. 44.44 billion (about $350 million USD), which I guess is a good thing. It seems like the credit card numbers have fluctuated, dropping and then rising again. There were 90,000 cards issued in 2012. On one level credit card debt is a horrible and evil thing, but credit cards do enable ecommerce and a lot of higher level transactions. On the whole I think it’s a good thing.
