90% of essential food items will be imported from India for the next 3 months – Nalin

Trade Minister Nalin Fernando says that 90% of the country’s essential commodities will be imported from India in the next three months and that there will be no shortage of essential commodities in the market.

“We can responsibly say that we will be able to provide the people with the essential food items for the next few months. For example, we do not have a rice crisis for the next 8 months. In addition, due to the predictions made in the discussion about the food crisis, it means that this could happen in the future and when all the goods are brought home, no country in the world will be able to supply goods like that. ”

“We have the opportunity to import US $ 180 million worth of essential goods under the Indian loan scheme. Therefore, we will definitely receive about 90% of our essential goods from India within the next two to three months. ”

Trade Minister Nalin Fernando said this while participating in a program on Neth FM.
