The Food Production National Program 2017 of the Sri Lanka Ports Authority (SLPA) was held yesterday at its Chaithya Premises inaugurated by SLPA Acting Chairman P. G. Dasanayake with the participation of SLPA Managing Director H. D. A. S. Premachandra. The SLPA segment of the national program, an initiative of President Maithripala Sirisena, was held parallel to the main event in Kekirawa.   

Speaking at the event, Acting Chairman Dasanayake said the SLPA’s contributory launch of the program adhered to the guidance extended by Minister of Ports and Shipping Mahinda Samarasinghe and following instructions issued by SLPA Chairman Dr. Parakrama Dissanayake.  “At a time in which global concern is focused on sharing of implementations of food security concepts amidst natural devastations and other challenges, the Government’s initiations on the Food Production National Program is a massive leap forward aiming at a self-sufficient future Sri Lanka,” said Dasanayake.  He added that SLPA employees would contribute their maximum participation to make this national objective a success. 

A program of distributing agri-seeds and plants was also held parallel to the program held at the SLPA.  The SLPA Board of Directors, Heads of Divisions and Sections, and a large number of employees attended the program.
