Lanka to import rice soon

The Ministry of Industry and Commerce has decided to immediately import 200,000 metric tons of rice.

Sri Lanka has launched an open international tender to import a fresh tranche of rice on 19 October – a first call in recent times to be issued to suppliers worldwide.

“We are making every effort to ensure that there will be no shortages for our consumers,” Minister of Industry and Commerce Rishad Bathiudeen said during his discussions with his top officials at the Ministry last Thursday.
