Sri Lanka govt to sell potatoes & onions at a discount to lower prices

The Government in Sri Lanka plans to sell onions and potatoes to consumers through the Sathosa outlets from today at lower than the prevalent prices. The decisions were made yesterday at a special discussion held at the Presidential Secretariat with President Maithripala Sirisena at the chair. 

Meanwhile, the Coconut Marketing Board has initiated a programme to sell coconuts directly to consumers to assist with price control, as prices have gone up excessively. 

The President instructed that a committee consisting of officials from the Ministry of Trade and Ministry of Agriculture should meet on a weekly basis to discuss variables relating to the sale of essential food items.
