Palmyrah Products should be encouraged similar to Kiththul Products are encouraged

As the Palmyrah Products of the North are in demand not only in the South but also globally, everyone should encourage the plmyrah products.

The Chairman of Northern Province Palmyrah Development Board, Kirishanthy Pathirana said yesterday they are to open two Katpakams in Canada.

A meeting of the Palmyrah Development  Cooperative Societies was held yesterday at the Conference hall of the Jaffna District Secretariat.

She said so while speaking at this meeting.

Elaborating further although 5,000 Kgs of Palmyrah Jaggery was needed by us for export we were able to get only 2,000 Kgs. The government is taking action to provide good marketing facilities to the Palmyrah producers.

The Palmyrah producers who expressed their views here said that the government is providing grants and tax exemption  facilities to Kiththul Producers and these facilities are not provided to Palmyrah Producers. If the Government will provide subsidies to Palmyrah Producers, this sector could be taken forward, they said.
