Minister Rajitha Senaratne said they had achieved victory as the price of fish has been reduced. He emphasized that they would not allow the price to increase. The programme they have mooted will help further bring down the price. This is their intention. The Corporation was earning a daily profit of 4.5 million rupees. The Minister added that programme has been launched not with the purpose of competing with others but to provide fish at reasonable prices to the consumers.
The Minister was speaking after opening the 70th outlet of the Fisheries Corporation at the Special Economic Zone in Narahenpita. Minister Johnston Fernando and Parliamentarian Thilanga Sumathipala were present.
