The government has approved to import 100,000 metric tons of rice from Myanmar to  keep sufficient buffer stocks.

The approval was granted to maintain a safe stock of rice without any shortage in the country. 

The decision was announced at the weekly cabinet briefing at the Information Department, a short while ago

Accordingly, the proposal made by the trade minister, the agreement between the two governments was made to the value of US$ 460 per metric ton through the Sri Lanka State Trading (General) Corporation. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    They have been importing rice for the last few months. Ministers make different different statements, no one knows who is telling the truth, I have never seen a bankrupt government like this in my life.

    That is the prosperity brought by the Sir, with organic. Is it produced of organic fertilizer?

    Few clarifications: 1. Accordingly 1Kg of rice import cost is about 100 LKR (USD 460 x 220.00 / 1,000), so how much would be the selling price? 2. Is that rice is Organic? (Coz, local rice production is screwed due to Organic concept)?
