Consumers in for host of benefits- Minister Johnston Fernando
*Budget has provided relief to consumers in all sectors
*A coconut is Rs 35 in wholesale market
*Kilo of rice now Rs 40, from Rs 100
Bringing down the prices of essential food
commodities especially during the festive season has become a
challenging task of the Co-operatives and Internal Trade Ministry.
Colombo - engine room of country
Colombo is a city we are deeply connected to. It
has most of the best educational institutions, hospitals,
residential facilities and tourist facilities. The central
administrative units of the Government are also located within the
Greater Colombo area.
Govt steps up coconut cultivation
Encouraging people, especially the younger generation on the
importance of replanting coconut trees is the only solution to ease the
shortage. A gazette notification, issued by the Government even at this
juncture on the ban of felling coconut trees is also commendable and if
this is strictly monitored, nobody will talk about import of coconuts.
