Rice sales complex near Dambulla Economic Centre

Representatives of farmer organisations in Dambulla, Matale, Polonnaruwa, Kurunegala and Anuradhapura request the Government to expedite the construction work on the rice sales complex building which is being constructed near the Dambulla Dedicated Economic Centre.

They point out that this will be a solution to the existing rice and paddy issue. This Economic Centre was set up for farmers enabling them to sell not only vegetables, but also their other produce. Paddy farmers too should be given an opportunity to sell their rice stocks at this Centre.

When this rice sales complex is set up, farmers who bring vegetables to the Centre will also be able to purchase rice they require. Seventy-percent of the vegetable requirement of the country is fulfilled by the Dambulla Economic Centre,” Kimbulwanaoya Farmer Organization President R.M. Thennakoon Banda said.
