Cement prices to be raised
Cement prices will have to be raised, said chairman of the National Cooperative Board Bandu Ranawaka.
He told that the increase would be between Rs. 5.00 and Rs. 10.00 per bag.
Mr. Ranawaka attributed the increase to the depreciation of the Sri Lankan rupee.
He added that the price hike would take place after the next consignment of cement was imported into the country.
