The Government has said that stocks of chicken and eggs will be imported to the country in the next few days.
The Government is importing 500 tons of chicken and 50 million eggs from an Indian supplier. It is for the first time that Sri Lanka is importing large stocks of chicken and eggs. Minister Johnston Fernando said that these can be purchased at reasonable prices from the CWE outlets. The aim of the Government is to provide chicken and eggs at a concessionary price during the festival season.
