CTC to close 2 tobacco vats!

The CTC announced today (30) that two of its tobacco vats in Anuradhapura and Sigiriya would be closed, thereby causing a loss of jobs for around 2,000 tobacco cultivators in the two areas and loss of income by around Rs. 200 million annually.

The company announced in December that it would have to close four of its vats in view of a decline in cigarette sales.
