Sri Lanka holds an international conference on food production in the next decade in Asia.
Around 60 delegates of 12 countries attend the conference. The gathering, which commenced yesterday at Negambo, continues until Friday.
Additional secretary of the ministry of agriculture Dr. Suba Heenkenda told that Sri Lanka has been chosen to host the conference for its popularity in growing vegetables, fruits and paddy.
The delegates of the conference broadly discuss about ways and means to produce healthy foods according to new trends that could arise in the next decade.
They gained first hand experience on local food production. Dr. Heenkanda said that holding an international conference on food production in Sri Lanka will enable the country to face challenges of the next decade.
