Sri Lanka to export rice next year

Jun 10, 2010 4:33:31 AM - itnnews.lk

Sri Lanka will export rice next year. Deputy Minister Dr. Sarath Amunugama told Parliament that this is possible due to the success of the cultivation drive in the North.

He said that Sri Lanka will inevitably export rice with farmers resorting to paddy cultivation in the North and East. This would make the country proud as Sri Lanka used to import rice. The country always desired to export rice produced by the local farmers.
