A team of technical experts from Russia will visit the island next year to carrying out investigations into plant quarantine procedures relevant to the country’s tea cultivation.

The move came after Russia temporarily suspended the ban on importing tea from Sri Lanka.

The ban had been imposed on the import of agricultural products including tea from Sri Lanka,  alleging that a beetle had been found in one of the tea consignments that had been exported by Sri Lanka.

Subsequently, the ban was lifted following successful talks between the two sides. 

During discussions, the Russian representatives praised Sri Lanka for the proposals made to maintain high standards in the country’s export of tea.

The Sri Lankan team gave their assurance that it would take stringent measures to further strengthen the phytosanitary procedures to avoid repetition of such flaws.
