Local Lanka Sathosa to sell canned fish at Rs 200

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has instructed that locally produced canned fish should be purchased through Lanka Sathosa at Rs 198, which will make it possible for consumers to purchase canned fish at Rs 200 from all Lanka Sathosa outlets.

The President issued these instructions during a meeting held with the Cabinet Sub-Committee on the Cost of Living.

The President had taken this decision considering a request made by the Minister of Fisheries Douglas Devananda, with the intention of protecting local industrialists while limiting imports as much as possible.
