CWE helping transport vegetables

Jan 12, 2011 4:01:54 AM - itnnews.lk

The Cooperative Wholesale Establishment is providing transport facilities in the distribution of vegetables to consumers at low rates.

Minister Johnston Fernando has instructed the relevant authorities to use trucks of the CWE in transport of vegetables. The Government has already taken action to contain the price of vegetables in the face of the prevailing climatic conditions. Arrangements have been made to get down vegetable stocks from Nuwara Eliya to Colombo today. These will be given to consumers at reasonable rates. The Army is also selling vegetables at low rates at several locations within the city. The Agricultural Ministry is also supporting this programme.
