The President was speaking at a meeting to discuss the agriculture, food security, introduction of new systems to expedite public services, management of government expenses held at President’s House yesterday.

“Many countries have laid special focus on food security. 40 percent of harvest in the country is destroyed in the distribution process,” he said.

He was of the view that a large stock of food can be saved if focus is made on this area. The farmers and the consumers can be assured a fair price, when the number of mediators are reduced during the distribution process,” he said.
