Chinese vegetables to the Chinese workers in Sri Lanka
There is a distinct difference in the Chinese kitchen at the Hambantota harbour construction site. It is due to the Sri Lankan grown Chinese vegetables. Over 60 farmers in Hambantota are involved in providing Chinese green vegetables to around 350 Chinese workers at the harbour construction site as these vegetables are not available in the normal Sri Lankan market. The project has been the result of JICA livelihood improvement programme. The program focuses on agriculture, infrastructure and institutional development and income generation.
