The cabinet has approved importing of Pepper, Arecanut, Cinnamon, Tamarind, Nutmeg and Mace to be halted.

It has been reported that the decision was taken upon factoring the issues which have impacted the local spice industry.

Accordingly importing of such spicies into the country and reshipping those products as Sri Lankan spicies to India and Pakistan will also be banned in future.

Recently an incident on the re exportation of an arecanut and pepper racket was also revealed.
