President Maithripala Sirisena has instructed officials to impose control prices separately for locally produced rice and imported varieties.

The President has taken these steps today following a meeting with mill owners at the Presidential Secretariat.

President Sirisena has insisted that rice supply should not fall short in the market.

He has stressed that a mechanism should be implemented swiftly to supply rice to consumers at a concessionary price.

He has also stated that the tax reduction on rice imports should be passed on to the consumer and insisted a buffer stock of one hundred thousand metric tons of rice should be maintained in government storehouses.
