I am pleased to welcome back to my Ministry’s fold the Hada Bima Authority of Sri Lanka which had functioned under the Ministry of Agriculture ever since its inception until it was transferred to the Ministry of Regional Development in March 2016. The functions of the Authority are directly relevant to increasing the food production and thus improving the food security of the country, improving the incomes and the livelihoods of the farmers and contributing to the nation’s export drive.
I am pleased to note that the Authority is embarking on several important activities such as the promotion of home gardens, promoting the planting of 1000,000 trees such as jack and other fruit bearing varieties, and the establishment of 15 Agricultural Zone in selected areas of the county in support of the theme “Api Wawalai, Api Kanney” (we shall cultivate the food we eat).
I am sure that the Authority will be able to realize the above mentioned objectives and activities in an efficient manner under the dynamic and enterprising leadership of the Chairmen and the Board of Directors of the Authority, as well as the dedication and the commitment of its staff.
Hon’ble Minister of Agriculture
