    In the mid `70`s, there was an excellent person doing Tea

    promotion in Japan.(Sorry I forget his name)What has happened in the `80`s was, people who came to promote trade were Minister`s people.These people were so ill trained that that could hardly speak a foreign language.So

    what can you expect these people do? Just idle and waste

    foreign funds.

    Thambi,

    your words are useless, your just wearing out your keyboard mate. The LTTE are slowly dying and it`s obvious the EU and UN are your only hope.

    When the sea monkeys and regular monkeys are being culled relentlessly, all you have left to do is hate on our tea.

    I bet you work for TamilNut (with dumbass comments like this).

    Good show, see you in killinochi, I`ll save a seat for you at the `reawakening of the north` ceremony.

    [an agent from each Sri Lankan embassy will be trained in tea promotion aspects and deployed]

    There, another job for a political crony. Sri Lanka is famous for Ceylon Tea for more than a century. What is this new `promotion` that is being contemplated?

    [Depite the Government spending over Rs. 70 million on activities connected with the Tea Commissioners in Dubai, Japan, Poland and Russia, the results have been negligible]

    Most of these funds would have been just wasted on hotel bills, air fares, `pocket money` and shopping sprees for the officials rather than being spent on anything worthwhile.

    Vimukth, you are absolutely right. Made the same experiences like you. Note this has been tested several times before and never worked due to luck of motivation / training by the people concerned.

    Find your positive and constructive proposal very interesting and it might be worth pursuing this further. In the meantime, let?s have a good cup of tea.

    Thambi has of course the right to have a different opinion, but I wish he would be a bit more positive.

    Elephant house, thank you....I hope the ministry or the Minister reads our comments.....I have worked/travelled to many European/ CIS countries, Sri lanka TEA has a huge potential in some of these European Countries/ CIS countries etc.,if its `International Marketing arm` can be strenghtened, its a very difficult process specially to `penetrate` into these `untapped` markets OR to markets where KENYAN/China CTC tea etc. are monopolised, but surely can be done by the guys who are specialised in this trade, its true these large companies can establish rep offices in some of these Countries BUT Govt to Govt Support is very essential, by giving accommodation in the Embassies to these Companies some may argue that the concerned company will try to Market/ sell their Tea only, but it will be a `win/win` situation, surely the company will gain BUT what we finally require is Sri Lanka tea to be sold....

    SL Tea Board is sleeping

    European Tea companies Trying to get revenge from Sri Lanka for chasing them away from tea estates.

    They boost Another big archipelago in the region.

    People think tea is coming from India.

    New generation don`t even know best tea is from Sri Lanka(Ceylon)

    There is no chance for them to taste `Ceylon Tea`

    Ambassadors Never drink Tea They are dosed by Whiskey

    No proper Propaganda to boost tea.

    There is a Big demand for tea in countries like America now as they now realized tea is good for health and reduces extra fat and help to keep a lean body. Specially American ladies now drink tea to keep their body shaped.

    But they don`t know they drink rubbish third grade tea that European tea companies boost out.
