Apr 11, Colombo: The Sri Lankan government has decided to reduce the import taxes on corn and sorghum effective from Friday.

According to the Ministry, all taxes imposed in the imports of corn and its substitute Sorghum have been withdrawn and a special commodity tax of 10 percent for a kilogram has been declared.
