Oil medicine are not priority food is priority. we can reduce transport cost and have other alternatives.
we can live 70 year without medicine.

CAN WE LIVE 3 DAYS WITHOUT FOOD???

when we have our own food we can bring SL cost of consumption to zero.
then all export revenue is profit. difference should be invested globally.

eat your own food and save other expences . do maximum export . srilanka can grow 20% rate.

Chicken/fish and rice should be never imported to SL exept 500% tax all should produce in SL.

@colombo CSE - any way im little biased thease days im highly invested in paddy fields. ha ha Laughing Laughing
you are wrong . we have to fid ways to reduce expences. ways to become indipendent.

Job we are slaving. you are proposing SL to become slave of other countrys.
we have to specialise not what we can do best . we have to specialise on what is important.

Stopping imports is better, but contributing to those plantations are good too. We have to balance both of them. Otherwise system will be jammed when special situation occurs.

However i also have some kinda sick which is not to depend on others.

In my scenario, Its Me Vs Government.

You know it's so hard to become self sufficient as a person against government services.But i planned not to purchase electricity from gov. I ll produce using solar panels or using some other technology.

I won't purchase water from gov. That's not hard btw.

And if we stop importing other food too (such as corn,vegetables,fruits) It will be so good.
We need to focus in increasing exports as well as reducing imports. We must limit imports only to essential things. And that will encourage local businesses too. GDP will be increased. Gov expenditures will be reduced. Good for country Smile

However we can't be self sufficient totally, But it will be good for us (as a human or as a country) limiting the ways we depend on others. Which means we can use our own way. own path to victory.

However during times of 1st king parakramabahu, we were self sufficient. That was the times that world used to call srilanka as the "Oriental granary" "පෙරදිග ධාන්‍යාගාරය". We were self sufficient from foods. Even we exported rice to many other countries. And that times, Srilanka was a "Developed Country" .

But after the invasions of so many intruders such as kalinga maagha and other "chola" intruders, Srilanka was totally destroyed. It happened during ages of weak kings.

After those attacks, Srilanka is still struggling to develop. over 1000 years. its still being a developing country.

Food is a basic need. At the time of hungry ,we can not eat monetary notes or coins. Especially related to rice, we should not consider profit and Loss.

You didnt get my point, what happened to Nepal now. If india stop Electricity , Nepal can not run,If India stop fuel Nepal can not run, If India stop medicine ,Nepal can not run, some times food also. If any country hasnt independent with energy,food ,technology,medicine of course they are not independence. Same way imagine virus scenario, if we are perfect with our production , we are safe.

That will be so good. So we can take decisions and go hard in any situation.According to your info, actually Nepal has no independence. 

The less we depend on others, we will be able to develop far better
Actually, Dependence to Development has a inverse relationship. 

At least it will be okay if some 2 countries are depend on each with a 50:50. Which means we export their essential as well as we import our essentials from them. Both countries need each other.

However imports and exports owe the main part of a country. It will decide the country's track. To the hell or heaven.

i was telling same thing with 1,2,3,4,5 points...hope u read all comments which i was added 
1) how much land we have for paddy..
2) What happens we can not import oil. can we make rice ?
3) to produce 1kg rice how much money we have to give outside of country


my point is "stop import rice" won't help. then rice price will increased cost will not reduced  
if peoples can not afford 1kg of rice price they will move to alternatives(Flour) again we paid most money to outside of country.

Yeah you are right.

But my point is if we are currently importing 4 items from other countries,
And It will be better to make it to  3 items , then 2. We are not talking about fully independence. At least it will be better to lower the percentage we depend on other countries.
And we must import things which we can't produce(at least which we haven't started yet) in our country such as oil,medicine etc.

We have to take step by step. and the 1st is stopping unnecessary imports. specially foods.

Hope you got it. NO winning or losing hahah. just sharing ideas of each other. no offence Smile
