Sri Lanka has sought technical support from India’s National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) and market leader Amul in order to build up its dairy output and become self-sufficient, reviving a relationship that the island attempted but failed to pursue in the late 1990s.

Officials from Sri Lanka’s Agriculture Ministry and National Livestock Development Board met with visiting Indian officials from the NDDB on Monday, according to the President’s media division. President Ranil Wickremesinghe has formed a committee comprised of representatives from Sri Lanka’s public and private sectors to work with the NDDB to “prepare a short, medium, and long-term plan to increase local milk production in order to reduce the country’s reliance on imported milk powder,” according to a statement from his office.
