The government is launching a number of programmes to increase coconut production.

An initial discussion in this connection was held under the patronage of Minister Basil Rajapaksa at the Presidential Secretariat. It was noted that maximum use has not been derived from the land used for coconut cultivation and the need to overcome the situation. They also focused on launching a programme to encourage the usage of fertilizer to obtain the maximum harvest from cultivations. Ministers, coconut cultivators, and those who are engaged in related industries participated in the discussion.
