Agriculture and Commerce Ministers to review rice situation in Sri Lanka
Daily News, June 5, 2004
Agriculture Minister Anura Kumara Dissanayake and Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Jeyaraj Fernandopulle will make an inspection tour in the Polonnaruwa district on Monday to look into the rice stock situation in the district.

The objective of the visit is to check the existing rice stocks in the hands of the mill owners and traders to provide an uninterrupted supply of rice to the market before any decision is made to bring down the rising prices, an Agriculture Ministry spokesman told the Daily News yesterday.

He said after this inspection tour, both Ministers will reach a final decision on importing rice. Fernandopulle has said that if there are sufficient rice stocks with millers and traders, there is no need to import rice.

According to Ministry sources, both Ministers will undertake their inspection tour in several areas in Polonnaruwa district such as Hingurakgoda, Minneriya and Palugahadamana on Monday. The Ministers will have a meeting with mill owners and traders at "Dhawala Mandiraya", Polonnaruwa at 3.30 pm.

Meanwhile, the Agriculture Minister has decided to register all rice mill owners under the Ministry.

"This will provide a lot of benefits to mill owners registered under the Ministry when they obtain loans from State banks," he said.
