    One main reason for higher coconut prices in local markets.

    GOSL has already banned export of Fresh Coconuts to Mid East and DC factories have closed down there productions.

    Damed ,

    During the recent past coconut production was law and just sufficient to fill the local market demand.Due to this reason export was law but none of the factories was closed in southern province to the best of my knowledge.

    Where and which factories you are referring, Damed

    Gchula99,

    I am referring to Negombo and Puttalam area.there is a reasonable increase in production but cannot find enough to DC factory`s.

    DC Mills are closed some work for few days.

    How about southern coconut dieseas../ is it under control../

    According the Daily Noise the economy of the country has never had it better!

    The closure of DC factories is because of the export ban.

    The government`s conclusion has been to attempt to stop the parcelling of coconut estates. The immediate effect of this will be to make it impossible for all the poor Lankans in the Middle East who are slaving away to save the money to build a house in Lanka, ever to be able to realize their dream, since if carried into effect it would lead to an even greater increase in the price of land than the one we have at present.

    Earnings in billions,but the people still facing lot of hardship..

    Good Economic policy..

    Foreign currency & Local production giving enough money to run the country without any problem, But only Big crocodiles like politicians,corrupted officials and Military sucking all the money leaving nothing for the poor people..

    All the burden put on to the head of Middle class and the poor people..

    Tiny percentage of leches sucking big percentage of the income..

    [The country has earned an income of Rs. 24 billion from exports of coconut and coconut related products last year.]

    Our war budget is Rs 160 billion.

    Coconut production not even enough for two month supply of bombs, guns and mortar for the country.
