Industry experts say that the drop in global tea prices will only be a short term benefit for Sri Lankan tea exporters.

Therefore, they need to focus on enhancing quality, value addition and branding to be competitive and increase its global market share.

Tea exports have been adversely affected due to the devaluation of currencies in many tea importing countries such as Russia and the Middle East.

It was also stated that the production in March and April will be dismal due to the drought in all elevations and also the holiday season.
