Minister of Industry and Commerce Rishad Bathiudeen says the maximum retail price for local rice will be promptly gazetted.

The Minister made this statement when attending an inspection of the stocks of rice at wholesale outlets in Pettah.

Minister Bathiudeen said according to the recommendations submitted by the Cabinet sub-committee on cost of living, local farmers will not be unfairly treated regardless of the importation of rice.
