‘SL to be self-sufficient in liquid milk within four years’

Minister of Agriculture Mahindananda Aluthgamage said in Parliament yesterday that the government aims to make the country self-sufficient in liquid milk within the next four years.

He added that the government has already implemented several programmes in this regard.

Responding on behalf of the Prime Minister to a question raised by Opposition MP Buddhika Pathirana during the question round for oral answers, Aluthgamage said the government would not intervene in the importation of dairy cows, and that lands would be given to private entrepreneurs for raising dairy cows.

Action would be taken to import dairy cows through private entrepreneurs, he added.
