The Sugar Ministry is urging farmers to attend the public consultation organized for them to present their views on way forward.
Ministry’s director for Policy and Research, Reshmi Kumari says the consultation started at the Penang Mill in Rakiraki last Monday where they met with farmers from seven sectors.
