Home gardening foundation for self-sufficient economy

Feb 25, 2011 11:24:39 AM - itnnews.lk

Minister Basil Rajapaksa has said that the ancient strategy of formulating from the home garden, the foundation for a self sufficient economy, suits the present day.

The Minister said that the main intention of the Divi Neguma programme was to increase the earnings of a family unit, while uplifting the nutrition and moulding a healthy family. This, he added, will enhance the income while reducing expenditure and improving the nutritional standard.

The Minister was speaking at a workshop organised to train Government officials of the Gampaha District on the One Million Domestic Economic Units programme. It was held at the Gampaha District Secretariat. A countrywide programme to appraise officials related to the Agricultural and Livestock Sectors about the programme is also planned.
