No cover for guaranteed sugar price: NFP


Jul 28, 2022 01:03:43 PM

National Federation Party Leader Professor Biman Prasad says he feels there is no budget provision to cover the guaranteed price of $85 per tonne of Sugarcane in the 2022-23 National Budget.
Professor Prasad said he wants to assure cane growers that sufficient funds have been allocated to the Ministry of Sugar to ensure the guaranteed price of $85 continues in the 2022-23 financial year.
"I’m worried that we won’t be able to pay that $85 per tonne if we do not make proper allocations."
"I know that the Economy minister did say while addressing the budget that the continuation of the guaranteed price will be there in the 2022-23 financial year."
"The current allocation of $8 million is enough only to ensure growers receive the guaranteed price of $85 per tonne for the 2021 season when the final payment stopped for last season to be paid in October."
"This is even emphasizing the pre-election Economic and Fiscal Update that states that further allocation of around $8 million dependent on the cane harvest is provided in the 2022-23 budget to meet the final payment for the 2021 season."
"So, it is not clear and I maintained that there is no allocation so this claim that rising sugar prices will mean $8 million is sufficient to cover for granted price for 2010 season is really you know, outrageous in my view."
"And by the time the 2023-24 budget is handed down in June, July next year, growers will already have received 4 payments and this would basically be very meagre amounts with no top up."
