Government today approved the proposal to classify Kithul as the main plantation crop and to establish a Kithul Development Board, Cabinet Spokesman Keheliya Rambukwella said.

Addressing the weekly cabinet briefing at the Information Department, the Minister said the Kitul-related production industry which is endemic to Sri Lanka has been recognized as a highly potential industry for earning foreign exchange and it also helps to uplift the Kitul industry even in the past.

The minister also said that it had been recognized that the expansion of Kitul related industry under this programme to create a people-centred economy across the local production implemented by the present government is appropriate. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    Before bringing in another crop, make the fertilizer freely available for coconut. Next year the price of a coconut will rise to 120 .

    What a new development .? KITUL DEVELOPEMENT BOARD. Headed by a Kitul Development Minister. So another way of giving employment to few blessed ones including a MP. Like what happened to coconut and rubber there will be kitul plantations everywhere but will it sustain. This country is blessed with so many brilliant brains but not in use but politicians rules the day
