President orders an end to wheat flour monopoly! Featured

President Maithripala Sirisena has decided to end the wheat flour monopoly of Prima and Serendib companies, president’s office sources say.

The decision has been taken as the local price has not come down despite a declining price in the world market.

The president has instructed the subject minister to grant wheat flour import permits to other companies.

He is already worried that the subject minister has shown no interest after gave instructions twice previously to end the monopoly, the sources add.
