The step take on traditional exports is quite commendably. The government must stop any form of corruptions and spending public money lavishly and direct them to good use

In comparision with 2013 the country has imported over 15 mn k.g of rubber in to the country.The government correctly came up with a quantity & quality based scheme to strengthen the small holder.A service very Well done.Streamling system for timly payments is the final refinment needed.
