At the Cabinet meeting held on 2024-02-05, the Minister of Fisheries Douglas Devananda stated that measures will be taken to prepare a new plan to commence large-scale Cashew cultivation in the Pooneryn area by providing lands for landless people, with the objective to popularize Cashew cultivation in the Northern Province.

Expressing views, the Minister stated that there are 472 acres of land belonging to Cashew Corporation at Jayapuram area in Pooneryn, and these lands are not utilized for any purpose, and hence Cashew cultivation should be commenced in these lands. The Minister added that he has already discussed with the Cashew Corporation in this regard. Measures will be taken to provide seedlings and fertilizer for cultivators and to sell the harvest to the Cashew Corporation for a reasonable price.

The Minister also said that through this project hundreds of families will be benefitted economically, and by the establishment of a Cashew processing center direct and indirect job opportunities for many youths from this area can be generated.
